The Founder and Director of the Craft Cannabis Alliance, Adam Smith, is one of the most brilliant people I have ever met inside or outside of the cannabis world. He is going to be speaking at an upcoming event that I encourage everyone to attend if they are in the area. Below is more information about ’Our Craft Future – People Place Planet Plant’ via the event’s Facebook listing:
We are kicking off 2018 with an incredible speaker, Adam J. Smith, JD, Founder & Director of the Craft Cannabis Alliance. Adam will be discussing the mission of the CCA and the future of our craft Cannabis industry.
The Craft Cannabis Alliance is bringing together the smartest and most visionary leaders in Oregon cannabis to shape an industry that consistently adds value to People, Place, Planet, and Plant.
Working together, the CCA will focus on the following:
Adopt standards and identify meaningful certifications under the CCA’s six categories (clean product, sustainable methods, ethical employment practices, local ownership/control, community engagement, and participation in the movement to end the drug war) that will define authentic Oregon craft cannabis.
Build a cultural and consumer movement that is mutually reinforcing of these values, and which supports the kind of industry we want to see, and to be.
Provide business and technical support to our members, and create a platform for the responsible, locally controlled craft industry to engage each other and the world.
Educate the industry, the media, political and opinion leaders about the craft cannabis movement, and the benefits of joining and supporting it.
Ensure that the Oregon cannabis industry is primarily owned in Oregon, building wealth in the communities in which it is grown, supporting local communities, institutions, and economies.
Protect the bountiful and extremely valuable cannabis biodiversity that is the legacy of generations of careful and dedicated Oregon growers and our unmatched regional terroir.
Celebrate and promote the world-class cannabis that IS Oregon craft.
I hope you join us!
