A cannabis expo in Massachusetts celebrated the state’s recent legalization laws, showcasing a massive 100-foot joint filled with 1,000 grams of weed.

WCVB-TV tweeted a photo of the enormous joint which stretched down a long table, and was put side-by-side with a roll of measuring tape.

The event announcer’s voice came over the loud speaker at 4:20 p.m. and asked, “Who wants to see a really big joint?” After which local Gardner resident Denise Fournier asked, “When are you going to light that up?”

The expo was held at the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass., and was sponsored by the Massachusetts Grower Advocacy Council and the Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance. Thousands of weed enthusiasts and 130 vendors gathered to see whose cannabis concoctions were the best, and competed in the following categories: herb, edibles, oils, topical treatments and concentrates, The Telegram reports.

Massachusetts legalized recreational cannabis for adults over 21 through a ballot initiative in November 2016, making it legal to possess up to 10 ounces of product in your home and up to 1 ounce on your person, according to The Telegram.

Speakers discussed the national movement to legalize marijuana and how entrepreneurs can set up legal businesses centered on cannabis related products.

“What we’re hoping to get out of it is a little bit of celebration to bring this out of the shadows and let the average Joe know this is not just some room that stinks like patchouli and is filled with hippies,” Peter Bernard, president of the Massachusetts Grower Advocacy Council, told The Telegram. “We’re coming out of the ‘pot closet,’ so to speak.”
