OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Smoking pot right in front of city hall. But there was catch.
Organizers of this weekend's International Cannabis and Hemp Expo set up a designated toking area. It was in front the city hall in Oakland, California. But organizers said people needed a valid medical cannabis card to light up.
California voters legalized medicinal marijuana in 1996. The weekend marijuana street festival also featured everything from bong sellers to bands.
