If you're in regulated #cannabis sector -- whether you're small, medium or large -- it's time to reach out to your elected reps. I've listed a number of areas where @GovCanHealth can assist this industry, as well as where we need help in terms of eco stimulus. #cdnpoli/1
Key steps #cdnpoli must take to help small, medium & large regulated #cannabis producers:

➡️Moratorium on paying 2.3% revenue share (confine to Q1, forgo rest of year revenue)
➡️ Temp lowering of excise taxes on cannabis
➡️ Access to all stimulus funding, incl through
@bdc_ca
Regulatory tweaks that @GovCanHealth can take to assist the regulated #cannabis sector ensure business continuity during #COVID19: /1 #cdnpoli
➡️If security-clearance holders in charge of supervising ops on site or accompanying offsite transport are unavailable in event of quarantine or illness, HC should allow LHs to designate stand-ins for these individuals using their own internal risk assessment process./2 #cannabis
➡️@GovCanHealth should temporarily suspend physical on-site inspections of #cannabis LHs and move to virtual meetings / compliance verification via email. /3
➡️@GovCanHealth should divert inspection resources to support processing of renewals/amendments (although amendments may seem ancillary, increased square footage granted in form of amendments would facilitate improved social distancing). /4 #cannabis #cdnpoli
➡️@GovCanHealth to extent renewals are delayed past expiry of current licenses, issue written confirmations that the Ls remains fully authorized to conduct all activities listed under current license until renewal is granted, and citing reason for disruption/5. #cannabis #cdnpoli
➡️@GovCanHealth This would allow LHs to stay compliant with public company regulatory obligations as well as any commercial covenants around licensing. /5.1 #cannabis
➡️@GovCanHealth Should third-party analytical labs become unavailable due to lockdown, permit LHs to release batches based on in-house testing conducted using validated methods. /6 #cannabis
➡️@GovCanHealth If certain industries are designated as essential include LHs in this category, to safeguard our ability to maintain operational continuity where it matters the most: supply medical #cannabis patients with the treatments they need. /7
We need to raise our collective voices here -- again, whether you are a micro-grower or a large producer, get busy and contact you MP, Senators, provincial/municipal officials, etc. This sector employs thousands and has contributed billions to the GDP. /8x #cdnpoli #cannabis
