Marijuana trade group hosts Boston symposium

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - A national marijuana trade association held a symposium in downtown Boston as the state gears up to begin allowing the sale of marijuana for medical purposes.

The National Cannabis Industry Association is billing the Saturday event as a chance to give investors and entrepreneurs a chance to meet and talk with professionals and experts in the field of medicinal marijuana.

Massachusetts voters passed a ballot question in November allowing for the use of medicinal marijuana for patients with certain medical conditions, including cancer, Parkinson's disease and AIDS.

The new law allows for as many as 35 dispensaries to open around the state where patients can receive up to a 60-day supply of marijuana.

The National Cannabis Industry Association says it works to advance the interests of cannabis-related businesses.
