NACB Updates

We are so excited to have been featured in the Cannabis & Tech Today summer 2020 issue where we discuss how the NACB is helping cannabis businesses meet social equity challenges. You can read the article by clicking here.

Speaking of social equity, our Social Equity Policy Guidelines (SEP Guide) is finally released and ready to serve as a roadmap for states looking to enact reparative, pro-cannabis policies, in an effort to restore justice in the War on Drugs’ aftermath. A huge thank you goes out to the many organizations and individuals whose feedback contributed to the formation of the guidelines.

Last month our Director of Legal Tom Nolasco was a guest speaker on the panel of the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA), where he spoke on labor and employment issues regarding cannabis. The presentation covered the relevant legal landscape for employers in states where cannabis is legal in some form and provided information regarding best practices for the workplace.

In case you missed the opportunity to catch CEO, Gina Kranwinkel live on Green Flower's episode 7 of Focus on the Future, you can watch the replay here. Gina discusses the role education plays in the emerging legal industry, as well as the NACB’s initiatives, what the organization has planned for the months ahead and why the sharing of knowledge is critical to the success of the nascent cannabis marketplace.

We discussed cannabis advocacy best practices and pitfalls at our last happy hour with host Eli Harrington, and guest speaker Saskia VannJames, who is in Community Relations and a Board Member of the Massachusetts Recreational Consumers Council. Stay tuned for October's invite and topic of the month.
