Most events are great but last year in 2015 we got to witness federal agents arresting 10 people. They seized marijuana , edibles and other cannabis related products. People at the event described seeing police dogs all over the event, as well as agents on the roof of the building.
Organizers didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment. On their Facebook page, they wrote in a post Monday: “We deeply regret the unfortunate police activity during the Las Vegas Hempcon over the weekend of May 15-17. It was a blow to our Vendors, the attendees, the Community as a whole, and to us as well. It is sad that our industry is subject to such indiscriminate and prejudicial behavior by law enforcement, but we as a Community will PERSEVERE and not let our forward momentum be derailed by them.”
