Meeting on Friday to discuss establishing marijuana cooperative

Meeting in Duncan fourth in a series community discussions across B.C.

Ensuring authentic B.C. cannabis can be available to consumers across the province, Canada and around the world is the subject of a meeting that will be held in Duncan on March 1.

The intent of the meeting is to help create a small cannabis producers and processors co-operative to help meet that goal, and small cannabis producers, processors and retailers in B.C. are invited to participate in the provincial consultations.

The community meeting in Duncan is being co-hosted by the Cascadia Agricultural Co-Op Association and Grow Tech Labs and it will be held Friday at the Best Western Cowichan Valley Inn at 6474 Trans Canada Highway, starting at 6 p.m.

This is the fourth in a series of community meetings with local co-hosts, like Cascadia, that will take place across the province over the coming weeks.

“This is an invitation to existing independent participants to come together to help create and enhance community-based access points to legal markets in the cannabis sector, and support networks to help the independent cannabis community in B.C. continue to thrive,” said Joel Podersky, co-founder and president of the Cascadia Agricultural Co-operative Association.

“The purpose of the province-wide consultation is to provide potential members with background information about what co-ops are, how the business model can be applied to the craft cannabis sector in B.C. and the potential benefits for members.”

Podersky said feedback from the meetings will inform the mission, vision, governance structure and activities of a B.C. small cannabis producers and processors co-operative.
