    This is a great idea. I have worked in the Colorado Cannabis Industry for close to 5 years. I have been production and cultivation manager at my current business for 2+ years. These proposals will be much easier to set in place than most business owners would believe, and will also help solidify the industry for further advancement in Cannabis expansion.
