EXCLUSIVE | Toronto Cannabis Business & Consumer Expo Fiasco, with a Silver Lining

The Cannabis Business & Consumer Expo in Toronto this weekend was more than a little bumpy for both guests and exhibitors. Wrought with confusion from the moment the first exhibitor arrived to set up on Thursday morning. One exhibitor told High Green News, upon arrival there was no one at the building, no lights on and the doors were all locked. As more exhibitors showed up for set up they all became increasingly worried that they were part of a scam. They began calling the various numbers provided on the expo's website and Eventbrite listing, none of which were answered.
