SCC Luncheon

Friday, April 21, 2017


Oregon’s Cannabis Industry was first introduced to members of the Salem City Club in September 2015 with a program featuring Salem law enforcement and a local medical marijuana dispensary owner. Since then recreational marijuana was legalized and the industry has more than tripled in size along with its challenges and importance to our economy. With so much happening in the areas of legislation, taxes, banking, possible consolidation of the medical and recreational systems and disputes with federal authorities, it was time to re-visit the subject.
Oregon State Senator Ginny Burdick (D-Portland), co-chair of the Joint Committee on Marijuana Legislation and Sara Batterby, CEO of the cannabis cultivation company HiFi Farms and a founding chair of Women Grow, will bring us up-to-date on everything that is marijuana at our April 21 program.
Senator Burdick will discuss the implementation of Measure 91 and the ongoing work of the Joint Committee on Marijuana Regulation. This Legislative Session, the committee continues to focus on providing what Senator Burdick calls “the right tools for our state agencies to oversee a successful recreational industry.”
Sara Batterby will tell of her experience building Hifi Farms into what she calls “the most progressive cannabis company in Oregon” and how her company has been rewarded as a brand and as a business for doing that.  She wants Oregonians to know that "good people" do work in cannabis with the majority of her employees being minorities, women and veterans.
