With the Vermont legislature primed to work on – and potentially pass – a tax and regulate bill in the 2020 session, it’s a great opportunity for the state’s cannabis community to step up, make our voices heard, and ensure the passage of high quality, just and equitable legislation.

Join the Marijuana Policy Project, Heady Vermont, Dave Silberman and a broad coalition of Vermont’s cannabis advocates on Thursday, January 9, 2020 for Cannabis In The Capitol. It’s a day to meet with legislators, promote the benefits of regulation, champion social justice, and highlight the economic development opportunities inherent in and around the cannabis industry – from growing and making to ancillary services such as security, testing, product tracking, insurance, banking, and canna-tourism.

Tentative schedule:

8-10 a.m.  Statehouse Cafeteria, 2nd Floor.  Informal meet-and-greet breakfast with legislators. A discussion about the benefits of regulation, with a focus on social justice and economic development. Complimentary coffee, bagels, and pastries.

11 a.m. Cedar Creek Room, 2nd Floor.  Press Conference with legislators and advocates.
