CANNABIS CULTURE – The 2011 Treating Yourself Medical Marijuana and Hemp Expo was the largest marijuana trade show Canada has ever seen, and CC‘s video cameras were fully charged and aimed at all the weedy fun and excitement. Here’s the good stuff.

The 2nd-Annual Treating Yourself Medical Marijuana and Hemp Expo featured a who’s-who of the Canadian and international cannabis communities. This years event was packed tighter than a fat bowl and was a success by every measure. The CC crew can’t wait for next years event. Thanks to Marco Renda (organizer of the TY Expo, interviewed in this video) and the everyone at Treating Yourself.

    You can tell by the coments you received in your interviews that Treating Yourself put on a class act show. It is so good to see marijuana industeries geting together to help med pot patients to get the best meds they can get anywhere. I hope this is a look at the things that will come to those of us who are working so hard to change things where we live.I beleive the change is coming and to see trade fairs like this will only help the change to come. A special thanks to everyone that promotes the cause of making marijuana legal to all.
