Went to THC Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Was pretty crowded people lined up to get in and paid ten dollars to get in. Once inside there were a variety of booths from Dispensaries, Doctors Rec's, bongs and pipes, grow equipment, magazines, hemp and activist groups. I saw Tommy Chong so went and talked to him. He said that he had heard about my case and he talked to me for about 5 minutes as a line formed behind me. I ended up giving Tommy my card and asked him to give me a call sometime. Also was good to see Mickey Martin, he had on his ankle bracelet and had a judges order to attend the event. Pretty funny right next door they had the LA Erotica show. Outside of the convention center there was a huge sign that said LA Erotica, but there was no sign for the THC expo. Was great to see that all these 'dangerous' pot smokers could get into the same room without a bunch of mayhem. Made me sad to think that there w ere over six hundred dispensaries in Los Angeles and not a single one in the County I live in, and to top that off that I was one of the biggest criminals in the building. I was there with Cheryl and her family and we walked through the entire expo. Many people recognized me and came up and thanked me for putting up a fight against the unjust laws of the Federal Government regarding medical marijuana. Forgot to bring my camera so didn't have any photos of the event. Decided that since I was there I went ahead and checked out the Erotica Expo next door.
