Friday Roll Up: 2020 VT Hemp Rules, Justice + Equity Campaign, NJ Assembly Advances Decrim

Monica Donovan 19 Jun 2020

“Decriminalization does not mean we eliminate public health and mental health resources for those dealing with substance abuse. It means we don’t incarcerate folks who may well need treatment instead. We spend money on treatment rather than jailing too many from our communities.”

– Quinton Lucas, Mayor of Kansas City

Welcome To The Weekly Roll Up – A Compendium of The Week’s Cannabis News

  NEW ON HVT: Anti-Racism Resources Page 

We have pulled together some resources that we believe will be helpful during these frightening and frustrating times. Understanding begins with all of us looking inward, reflecting on our own attitudes, engaging in allyship, and of course, having difficult conversations with family and friends. Keep scrolling for kid-friendly resources.

In the Roll Up’s Social Justice section below, there are also some very compelling reads about racial injustice and the cannabis industry.

Lastly, don’t miss next week’s Meet up To Scale Up: Mitigating Risk, Maximizing Talent, a free webinar with AJ Van Wallendael at noon next Friday. We wish you all a safe and fun weekend!
