Lowell Herb Co. launches Jobs Initiative
“The industry today exists in large part based on the fact that all of the early pioneers took risks in the grey market."
“In America and around the world, people have been using cannabis for centuries. Finally, the laws in U.S at the state level are catching up with the fact that the people have spoken, with 64 percent in favor of marijuana legalization,” David Elias, Lowell Herb Co. chief executive officer told mgretailer.
“The industry today exists in large part based on the fact that all of the early pioneers took risks in the grey market. In essence, the industry as a whole should be conscious of this and take actions to give people affected by cannabis prohibition a second chance,” Elias added, "we know the best way for Lowell to make an impact is to take action."
“We are hopeful that other companies will also look to hire people effected by cannabis prohibition, but we know the best way for Lowell to make an impact is to take action. We are starting first with our program to hire qualified candidates, and then working to expanding the program to include other cannabis companies that want to participate.”
The new initiative is the most recent action taken by Lowell and other cannabis companies to provide resources and jobs to individuals and communities that have been negatively affected by marijuana prohibition and the War on Drugs. Lowell Herb Co. also supports the Marijuana Policy Project.
