We’ve been teasing an important update coming soon. Truth is we have a few of them in store for you over the next couple of months.
But this first one, well, it’s a doozy.
There are many fighters for cannabis reform both past and present. One of those key fighters has been N.H. House Representative Timothy Egan of Grafton County 2 (Sugar Hill).
From my perspective, he’s a great human being, pro business and industry, media savvy, respected educator, coalition builder and one heck of a member of the House that has been fighting with our cannabis reform coalition for years.
Of course, a lot of pro cannabis reform warriors don’t get a ton of exposure unless you engage in the legislative machinations of the State.
So it is our distinct pleasure to bring Rep. Timothy Egan to the forefront and announce his joining the New Hampshire Cannabis Association as our Chair of the Board of Advisors!
Tim will be diligently working to form our board of advisors, engage with pro cannabis legislators, recruit event and corporate sponsors, plan and execute cannabis events, generate public relations and media outreach, grow our north country presence and help our coalition finally bring a responsible adult use market to the state. And that is just the start!
To say we are delighted he is participating with our association is an understatement.
So join us in welcoming him aboard!
