Interested in a “Vermont Way” towards cannabis legalization?
VTCC Holding Public Meeting @ Northshire Books in Manchester
Focus on Economic Development, Job Creation for southern Vermont
Members of the Vermont Cannabis Collaborative (VTCC) will be hosting a public meeting from 5:00 to 7:00 pm on Tuesday, September 1 at Northshire Books in Manchester, Vermont to explore cannabis legalization and Vermont’s future.
The meeting is free and open to the public, and will bring together Vermont farmers, entrepreneurs and interested citizens to talk together about how cannabis legalization in Vermont might benefit farmers, the agricultural sector, and the Vermont economy as a whole. “Vermont is in need of an economic boost to bolster agriculture, tourism, and job creation,” explains Bob Stannard, the event’s co-host. “We have a short window of opportunity to do it right and position Vermont to be the cannabis center of excellence for the Northeast.”
The Vermont Cannabis Collaborative’s mission is to support development of the Vermont cannabis industry so that it is imbued with Vermont values and achieves the greatest contribution to Vermont’s needs in economic sectors including Medical, Recreational, Tourism, Agricultural and Specialty Foods. VTCC steering committee members include Dan Cox of Coffee Enterprises, Michael Jager of Solidarity of Unbridled Labour, Alan Newman founder of Magic Hat, Judy MacIsaac Robertson co-founder of Highland Sugarworks, Hinda Miller of Jogbra, Will Raap of Gardener’s Supply, and Rob Williams, professor of policy/communications at the University of Vermont.
