Surveys: This is how we find out how to help you!

The Town of Truckee has launched a survey which will help them prepare for the cannabis ordinance development process. The survey takes two minutes and your input will help to shape public input.

Also, stay tuned for information on upcoming Town-sponsored cannabis workshops to discuss regulations. Workshop dates are Feb 9, Mar 9, April 13 & May 11th.

Get involved. Participate.

Last month at the California Growers Association Envision 2026 Conference, our members shared vision was clear: many independent businesses are better than a few big conglomerates, and respect for our natural environment and our communities, our workers and the consumers we serve must be the foundation of everything we do.

Here are some surveys to determine how to move forward with some of the ideas that came out of the conference:

Barriers to Entry
At the event we spent some time discussing barriers to entry and trying to better understand the challenges you and others are facing as you work to transition into the regulated marketplace. Better understanding of these barriers is required to generate solutions. I put together a quick survey that seeks to get your input on what the biggest hurdles are.

Banking
On Friday, February 10th the Cannabis Banking Working Group chaired by State Treasurer John Chiang will meet in Los Angeles. In order to most effectively represent our community as a member of this working group, I am asking for your input about the problems that the lack of banking access is causing in your life and business. The working group has several more meetings planned throughout the state over the next several months. Hezekiah Allen will share more details with you as they are finalized, make sure you are either a CGA member or an Alliance member to get those updates.

Distribution
It is no secret that distribution is a controversial subject to many in the cannabis business. With the reconciliation of Prop 64 and the MCRSA happening in real time, several important issues–including distribution–are being considered by policy makers. Opinions are mixed, passion and emotions are high. I would like to invite you to participate in a short survey about distribution and reconciliation. Your perspective will help tremendously as the California Growers Association negotiates amendments to several pieces of legislation over the next few months.
