AKRON, Ohio — The Ohio Marijuana Expo, which brings local, regional and national cannabis industry experts to one space for consumers and anyone interested in the industry, is back again this year on Oct. 2 at the Summit County Fairgrounds.

Tickets sell out fast, according to the site, so buy them here.

"Whether you’re a current patient, a dispensary worker, looking for a career in cannabis, or you just want to learn more about the industry, this is the place for you!" organizers said.

Visitors attending the expo can expect a blend of medical marijuana cultivators, processors, dispensaries, advocates and experts.

According to the event’s website, Ohio Marijuana Card physicians will offer on-site discounted medical marijuana evaluations, allowing you to discuss your condition and get approved the same day.
