Medical Marijuana Convention Called Off
A Halloween pot convention planned for the Pontiac Silverdome has gone up in smoke.
Promoters of the 3-day event at the end of this month called it off after city leaders got wind of the details.
What got the attention of police was the advertising flyer showing a jack-o-lantern smoking a reefer and a beanstalk-size pot plant growing through the Silverdome roof. That, and 400-plus vaporization tents had local officials on edge that this was going to be more than just a discussion of medical marijuana.
Pontiac Mayor Leon Jukowski said it was somewhat disrespectful to hold it in a town that has its fair share of drug problems.
Promoters had predicted as many as 50,000 attendees for the 3-day cannabis convention.
