Cannabis in the Kingdom
Event Seeks Public Input for Vermont Cannabis Industry Formation
Thursday, August 19 / 6-8pm Burke Mountain Ski Area
[EAST BURKE, VERMONT, August 2021] – In order to collect feedback and input from the agricultural sector in northeastern Vermont, members of the Vermont cannabis control board, legislative leaders, and cannabis industry specialists will convene an interactive discussion and networking session at Burke Mountain on Thursday, August 19 from 6-8pm. The event is free and open to all interested members of the public, who are asked to please RSVP here.
The goal of the event is to gather pragmatic feedback and input about the formation of the legal Vermont cannabis industry and how to best capture its potential for the northeast kingdom and other rural communities.
Sample topics include cultivation challenges and recommendations for licensing; costs and realities of cannabis production; integrating food producers and cannabis; and integrating tourism and legal cannabis.
The event has been coordinated by Eli Harrington, an Irasburg resident who works as a cannabis industry consultant, event-planner and is a registered hemp cultivator
“There’s a ton of hemp knowledge and experience up here in the kingdom, but not everyone has the time or technology to participate in the remote daytime discussions. If cannabis is going to be an opportunity for rural Vermont, it’s important for people who are interested in this industry to get together and have their voices heard and share their feedback and ideas right now, while the commissioners and others are finalizing the details.”
From 6:15-7:00pm, an interactive panel will both share their insight, and respond to discussion topics, related to the existing and future regulations for legal cannabis in Vermont. A cannabis regulation questionnaire and survey will also be available online and at the event.
Confirmed panelists include Cannabis Control Board Commissioner James Pepper, Senator Joe Benning (R-Caledonia), and Timothy Fair (Vermont Cannabis Solutions Cannabis Law Firm). Other invited panelists include members of the Vermont House of Representatives, and Amelia Machia (Registered Vermont Medical Patient) and Efficiency Vermont.
