Vibe Life Expo aims to break medical marijuana stigma

ROCKFORD, Ill (WIFR)--- Cindy Lou, like many, was skeptical on the idea of using medical marijuana until she tried it.

Now Cindy Lou works for 1000Watts Magazine, a magazine centered around cannabis education. And Cannabis Education is at the core of the Vibe Life Expo.

"cannabis, marijuana, pot, grass whatever you guys want to call it. There's that stigma that people need to get over," says Cindy Lou.

The expo features both local and national vendors who are dedicated to not only teach other about weed's medicinal purposes but also how it can be used as art.
