Retail Cannabis Conversations: A Public Health Perspective Event (Video)

Does your town have retail cannabis on the docket for town meeting? Do you want to know more before you vote on this important issue?

This presentation covers: General overview of the retail cannabis law, Act 164; Most up to date decisions coming out of the Cannabis Control Board (CCB); What a local Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) is and what it can do; Suggestions for towns should an opt-in vote pass; Public health insights related to retail cannabis, backed by data from other states; And questions submitted by the public.

Green Peak Alliance member, The Collaborative, hosted an online forum on Monday, February 21, 2022 from 6:30-7:30 PM on Zoom to provide information on retail cannabis and give community members an opportunity to get their questions answered. Before communities vote on Retail Opt-In, it’s important to be fully informed. All residents were welcome to attend, especially residents of Chester, Hartford, Springfield, and Woodstock (Town and Village). The Zoom event was recorded and posted below and available for all to watch.
