Week in Weed: The best 15 Instas from #MJBizCon — and one bonus flick

This week we have collected our favorite photos taken at Marijuana Business Conference & Expo (#MJBizCon) in Las Vegas. The Vegas junket is notorious in the cannabis industry for being great for networking, having a few drinks and sleeping very little. Some even skip the conference goings-on and make the trip just for the parties. So without further ado, check out the canna-celebrities, the canna-products and don’t forget the canna-bonus shot of Miss Miley.

We want to see your weed photos: To submit your Instagram weed pics to the mix, make sure your photos are public and tag @cannabistcurator or use #WeekInWeed. We are not liable if you get in trouble at work because you’re posting weed pictures online. So post responsibly, friends, and we’ll see you again soon.

1. It’s like “Grease” meets the cannabis industry.


2. Some took the advice fairly seriously.


3. Others ate their way through Vegas.


4. Julian Marley, post interview.


5. Post-conference “decompression” time.


6. Not your mama’s photo booth.


7. But this IS your mama’s Willie Nelson.


8. L-R: Farmer Tom Lauerman, cannabis activist, with Jeff Mizanskey, whose life sentence for marijuana was commuted this year.


9. Blue City Diesel…in a can.

Game changer: cannabis in a can. SO BADASS. Still not over it. @jennnnshort and I just cracked it open and it was fresh, had beautifully large buds, and smelled ridiculously amazing. Not to mention it's beautifully designed (what can I say, I'm a #designnerd ๐Ÿ˜ #noshame) AND they package each strain differently. This one is Blue City Diesel; officially approved. ๐Ÿ‘ Had the pleasure of meeting a couple of wonderful people with @n2packaging – the guys behind the scenes of this beauty – tonight at the #williesreserve and #cannabrand party in the #womengrow suite. As expected, it was blast (of course). And we sincerely thank N2 for the amazing new experience of cannabis in a can. ๐Ÿ™Œ #mjbizcon

Bonus! Couldn’t leave out this shot of Miley smoking … an empty bowl?
