The first Wisconsin Cannabis Expo took over the Wisconsin Center on Saturday in downtown Milwaukee.

Dozens of exhibits and speakers showcased hemp and CBD products. People also spoke about the future of marijuana in Wisconsin.

Some have high hopes it will be legalized soon.

"It will happen, but right now despite the fact that 80% want medical, you have the legislature unwilling to even take the bills up," organizer Louis Fortis said.

The organizer says around 3,000 people showed up for the event.
