HUMBOLDT COUNTY, Ca. (KIEM) -It’s a big day for the cannabis industry in Humboldt County.
The Board of Supervisors approved several new programs that will help cannabis business owners.
Those newly approved programs also includes cultivators and manufacturers.
It’s all part of Project Trellis. One of these new approved programs in the project was an Equity Program. That program would serve communities that were heavily impacted by the war on drugs. A Micro-grant plan was also approved. That will help small business owners apply for funding. The money will then help go towards helping owners. The next step is to create a cannabis advisory committee.
Part of Project Trellis is also a marketing campaign. The Board of Supervisors also approved that. The plan is to create and market a cannabis industry unique to Humboldt.
Many cannabis business owners were say, they’re very excited for this big moment and they look forward to the future of the cannabis industry.
