The BC government is currently weighing options for retailing adult-use recreational cannabis. We expect a decision will be made in the coming weeks. Whatever government decides, there is no doubt this will be the single largest economic opportunity in a generation.
ABLE BC has teamed up with our partners in the BCGEU to launch a provide-wide advertising campaign in late November and December. The purpose of the campaign is to demonstrate to government and British Columbians that BC’s liquor stores are best suited to retail cannabis safely and responsibly.
This campaign is not in ABLE BC’s current budget, so we need your support to fund it. ABLE BC is asking all LRS members to make a minimum donation of $300 per store. Thank you to everyone who has already contributed to the campaign. Your support is greatly appreciated.
If other members would like to support the campaign or if you are an LRS member and have not yet donated, you can make a donation online at: https://ablebc.ca/product/recreational-cannabis-advocacy-campaign-donation/.
Advertising Campaign launched: the campaign launched this week, with radio ads on major stations across the province. For more information about the campaign, please contact Jeff Guignard (ABLE BC Executive Director) at 604-688-5560 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
