Remember those never-ending working group meetings surrounding the never-say-die edibles bill? The working group has been unable to reach a consensus, but you still have a chance to offer a public comment...if you do it quickly. Keep reading for details.
Like the rest of the country, the Marijuana Enforcement Division will be closed for Thanksgiving this Thursday, November 27. And next Monday, December 1, will be the last day that you can submit your public comment about the edibles issue that kept the work group tied up for days and days during the past year. E-mail your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. on Monday, December 1.
Sell-SMaRT, a responsible cannabis-vendor training program hosted by the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) and Cannabis Trainers, will take place from noon to 5 p.m. on December 10 at Dixie Elixirs, 4990 Oakland Street in Denver. Visit https://thecannabisindustry.org/events.
