Entry to the “vape tent” requires pre-approval from the staff of Medical Marijuana Caregivers of Maine. To prevent the spread of insects or plant disease, show rules prohibit bringing live marijuana plants inside.

Kingsbury said the caregivers’ group putting on the event is conscientious.

“They’re very well organized. They know the law and make sure any exhibitors and attendees are following the laws,” he said.

He said at last year’s event, 30 to 40 volunteers were “constantly walking around to make sure everybody is doing what they’re supposed to be doing.”

The rules also say, “A certified patient or caregiver may donate medical marijuana to another certified patient.”
