The co-op licenses required special permits from the county

A cannabis co-op is a special type of business that operates as a single unit even though there are many different business owners.

Each one of the owners has a say in making decisions on the operation of the business.

There are many key principles to a cannabis co-op. Membership to the coop must be voluntary and open. There must be a democratic voting block in control. Each person has to be trained and educated on the laws and safety issues regarding cannabis businesses. In a co-op, each member gets a single vote. Profit from the business is shared between each member of the co-op. My family farm I’ve been growing marijuana for the past 25 years. My dad started growing marijuana back in the days of the bootleggers. We grew pounds and pounds of marijuana and sold it for profit to people on the other side of the border. Because of this practice, there are still a number of illegal marijuana farms in the area. During a town meeting, I brought up the coop idea. It was certainly met with some resistance. Some of the farmers did not want to legalize. They were happy starting around the law hoping not to end up in prison. I held a special town hall meeting last Tuesday and six other formers showed up. I had the opportunity to talk and say my piece to the people who were actually interested in learning more about the marijuana co-op opportunities. People were certainly more intrigued than I thought they would be and I had a lot of interest in legalizing.
