Employee Hiring Survey


Due to popular demand, we are looking at creating some information for the industry to use when hiring employees and helping with retention. In order to make the information the most effective we need some help from you. 

Please take 5 minutes and answer a few basic questions so we can tailor the information to suit you best. The more responses we get the better opportunity we'll have to provide the best information for the industry. 

Your responses are voluntary and will be kept confidential. All responses are anonymous and will be compiled together and analyzed as a group.

Thank you!

URGENT! Call to Action!


Write the House Democratic Leadership and sponsors of 1692 NOW!

We must get HB1692 - H AMD 86 out of the house TODAY!!!!

1692 clarifies that the cultivation of cannabis is an agricultural activity. The bill is currently hung up because the Democratic house is concerned about a conflict between the original bill and language that the Union added as it passed out of committee. The Cannabis Alliance is working hard to rectify the issue directly with the union but we have no more time to lose. If the bill doesn't get out of the House TODAY it's over until next year. 

Small farmers, outdoor farmers, cannabis farmers of varying types and the cannabis industry as a whole doesn't have the luxury of time to wait another year. Please help flood in boxes with this message. Thank you!

Personalized emails to the sponsors and democratic leadership will be the most effective. 

Those people are below.
