2VR-buttonsVTCCCannabis Conversations, On the Road

Waitsfield, Vermont @ the Big Picture Theater; Friday, October 2, 2015

Economic Development, Job Creation, and Nonpartisan Support

The Vermont Cannabis Collaborative (VTCC) will be hosting a public meeting and information night from 7:00 to 9:00 pm on Friday, October 2 at the BIG PICTURE THEATER in Waitsfield, Vermont to explore the future economy of cannabis legalization here in Vermont. The meeting will include background on how cannabis is regulated in other parts of the world, and across the U.S. What worked well in other regions, and why?

This event is free and open to the public, and will bring together Vermont farmers, entrepreneurs and interested citizens to discuss how cannabis legalization in Vermont might benefit farmers, the agricultural sector, and the Vermont economy as a whole. Other states and countries have learned lessons we can apply to Vermont. What options might be the best fit for Vermont and Vermonters?

“VTCC will be sharing the results of our summer 2015 research into a statewide, collaborative and strategic approach to present to the Legislature for an emerging Vermont cannabis industry,” explains Waitsfield resident Rob Williams, VTCC steering committee member. “We see cannabis legalization as a nonpartisan issue for Vermont that Republicans, Democrats, Progressives and decentralists can all support, and we are seeking ideas and input from all interested Vermonters.”

This event is co-sponsored by Green Mountain Global Forum (GMGF) which seeks to deepen understanding of the world we live in, while fostering connections and inspiring change.

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.
