      With legalization just a few months away, we know that residents of Vancouver, the Lower Mainland, and beyond have questions about cannabis and its potential: Is it safe? Does it have medicinal value? Can I use it on my pet? What about driving? These queries are just the tip of a very big iceberg.

      Recognizing this need for education, Vancouver’s longstanding source for news and entertainment, the Georgia Straight, will host Grassroots: An Expo for the Cannabis Curious at UBC Robson Square on the weekend of April 7 and 8. The weekend-long conference will feature space for exhibitors, a lounge area, and a stage for speakers and panels that will discuss topics like women’s health, identifying quality, cooking with cannabis, treating pain, and cannabis for seniors, among others.
