EUGENE, Ore. -- About 400 people attending a medical marijuana business conference in Eugene see more opportunities if Oregon voters in November legalize recreational marijuana.
There's more to marijuana than smoke. New products include hash oils and gels, vaporizers and marijuana-infused edibles.
The Register-Guard reports the Oregon Medical Marijuana Business Conference began Sunday and continues Monday at a Eugene hotel.
In addition to vendors, attendees are hearing advice from business consultants and experts on the law.
The host of an online talk radio show on marijuana, Russ Belville, says he's not too worried about local government moratoriums on dispensaries. He says once cities start seeing tax revenue from marijuana, dispensaries will be irresistible.
