Recent legalization of recreational cannabis in Oregon allows adults over the age of 21 to grow up to four plants in their homes. Many people are going to take this opportunity to cultivate their own marijuana, and not everyone is a natural gardener. The CannaGrow Expo will take place August 28-29th, and this 2 day event will have educational sessions geared toward growers at all levels, as well as networking opportunities for those looking make meaningful connections in the cannabis industry.
