With the 2021 legislative session now underway, the Craft Cannabis Coalition is actively engaging on issues important to your business. As a CCC member, we value your input and seek your feedback on two specific bills that would impact our industry.
Homegrows: House Bill 1019 seeks to allow, with some limitations, individuals 21 years or older to produce or possess six plants in their residence. The CCC supports this bill as it will further normalize the use of cannabis and provide an opportunity for direct consumer education regarding cannabis production. A copy of the bill can be found here:
Medical Marijuana Excise Tax Exemption: Senate Bill 5004 seeks to provide an excise tax exemption for medical marijuana patients. The CCC supports this bill because it will increase affordable access for medical marijuana patients and potentially increase overall retail cannabis sales.
