Jun 29, 2022
VS partner Shawn Hauser visited the Palace of Westminster in London earlier today to speak with members of Parliament about the economic benefits and lessons learned from cannabis legalization in Colorado and other states.
Shawn was invited to present at a meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for CBD Products, a cross-party group focused on the development of a regulated CBD market in the United Kingdom. Her presentation highlighted the core elements of well-regulated markets and how they foster an attractive investor environment—touching on everything from product availability, affordability, and assortment, to tax structures, job growth, and the importance of regulatory enforcement.
The group's chair, Conservative Party MP Crispin Blunt, tweeted about this insightful discussion. Click here to see his post and images of Shawn at Parliament.
