2023 was my first time at MJBizCon and here’s the highly anticipated THC MJBizCon 2023 recap. There were highs and lows and normally I’d bunch them together for organization’s sake but Vegas is a journey, and if you weren’t there – this is your chance to experience the highs and lows in one run just like the rest of us. First thing to report: smoking cannabis was officially prohibited, but unofficially allowed. A clearly marked smoking section that allowed smoking but said “No Cannabis Use” in green lettering caged in smokers with cops on all sides. Clever attendees were spotted dabbing on balconies and in bathrooms like normal human beings. I saw it as a clear analogy for how normalization and decriminalization works in action. Nevada has ridiculous cannabis laws, with homegrow effectively disallowed and public consumption explicitly disallowed, there’s still a lot to improve. That being said, the venues hosting MJBizCon and its afterparties tolerated cannabis use outside their doors for one night only.
