Cannabis Businesses Prepare For The New Year

Dec 4, 2017

Dec 4, 2017 -- Cannabis business people are preparing for a raft of new regulations in the new year. We're running a series of interviews with people in various sectors of this rapidly changing economy. We hope to check in with them periodically, as life under the new regulations becomes a reality. We're starting today with Kyle Greenhalgh of Kure Wellness, a dispensary just outside Ukiah city limits. Tune in to hear about his strategy, and what is weighing on his mind these days.

Members of local fire safe councils gathered at the Redwood Valley Grange to offer tips about how to make their communities safer and more resilient to fire. In this story, we'll hear about how one community maintained communications during the recent disaster, and how another created maps that helped out-of-state responders find their way through unfamiliar terrain. The event was sponsored by the Hopland Research and Extension Center, and featured experts from a wide range of fire-related fields of expertise.
