JOHANNESBURG - The Cannabis expo opens in Menlyn, Pretoria on Thursday, but there won’t be any puffing and getting stoned.
The exhibition is the first since the historic Constitutional Court ruling that legalised cultivation and possession in personal spaces.
It remains illegal to trade in dagga, or in seeds, therefore no actual marijuana will be allowed on the premises.
Legal weed: What you need to know
The expo will showcase different growing techniques.
International and local experts will explain the legalities of using the plant.
The event will be hosted annually around the country, moving to Cape Town and Durban.
