What happens when four manufacturers from different industries get together to help a community?

When hand sanitizer shortages due to Coronavirus were announced, at least four companies across Chaffee County jumped at the chance to help fill the void. What started as four companies looking independently to address the shortage quickly led to local businesses working together to make it happen from supplies on hand. The collaboration was initiated by Sterling Stoudenmire, President & CEO of Pure Greens, who brought in PT Wood, Salida Mayor and co-Founder of Wood’s High Mountain Distillery, Christian Koch, Founder and Director of Brewing Operations at Elevation Beer Co., and Alan Pursell, Owner of Pursell Manufacturing. Each company contributed a critical ingredient or part to make much needed sanitizer available to the community quickly.

Hotels Profit From Marijuana Legalization

One of the most overlooked benefits of marijuana legalization is the boost it gives businesses that don’t have anything to do with weed. Long before so much as a gram of pot can be sold, realtors, contractors and construction crews are needed to get cultivation operations and dispensaries whipped into shape. Properties must be sold, structures built, gutted, redesigned and fitted with new electric and ventilation systems. It’s a whole process that most people don’t give a second thought, and it is one where presumably thousands of non-pot-related workers are reaping the rewards.

Cannabis lounges not 'very profitable,' says Colorado lounge owner

Cannabis cafes have been a bit of a disappointment in one of the cities which spearheaded the movement to legalize weed.

“We’re very happy to have them, they just aren’t profitable,” said Rita Tsalyuk, owner of The CoffeeJointCo, a cannabis cafe in Denver, Colo.

The cafes in that city currently operate on a bring-your-own weed model — they are not permitted to sell any cannabis products.

There is no smoking allowed but users can, “dab, use vape pens, and consume edibles.”

The experience in Colorado should raise concerns in Ontario where provincial officials are now conducting an online consultation designed to come up with rules for cannabis cafes and lounges.

Colorado Cannabis Companies Circumventing Ad Restrictions by Adopting Highways

It’s quite the conundrum in our ad-heavy society, keeping kids away from certain commercial messaging. In many states, cannabis companies are particularly censored in this regard. Colorado is one of them. In the first state to legalize recreational cannabis, such companies are banned from TV, radio, and print ads to which minors could be exposed. Social media is a bit of a minefield for hopeful cannabis advertisers to traverse. Many kinds of outdoor advertising have also been banned. 

But for years, the state’s cannabis brands have found a workaround.

Anti-Legalization Activists Attempt to Roll Back Colorado Cannabis Reform

Nearly eight years after Colorado voters legalized recreational cannabis, there are still some who want to see the state in the world of prohibition. A proposal for a ballot initiative that aims to repeal the part of the state constitution that says that cannabis “should be legal for persons twenty-one years of age or older and taxed in a manner similar to alcohol” was submitted to state officials in January. The proposal doesn’t appear to be worrying too many people in Colorado – but, it shows that there are some folks who truly don’t see all the positive changes that came with legalizing cannabis.
