Yesterday, VIMEA partnered with the Center for the Study of Cannabis and Social Policy.   The Center will provide introductions to industry influencers and put us in contact with donors.  VIMEA will share the strategies we've developed for integrating legal marijuana agriculture into rural America so our community organizing lessons can be used by other states soon to legalize.  This partnership is a big win for Vashon Island entrepreneurs seeking markets for their products and recognizes Vashon for its leadership role in the US.

VIMEA founder, Shango Los testified in front of the Washington State Liquor Control Board last night regarding challenges to integrating legal marijuana agriculture into the social fabric of our community.  He also pressed the Board and got the ruling rural growers can keep food crops inside the security fence with the pot because as farmers we know that an 8 foot fence isn't security as much as a big deer fence!

VIMEA received an enthusiastic reception by Vashon farmer's market shoppers today.  Surely the sunny and warm weather had a role to play in that.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello.  Based on what I am hearing so far, I think island pot farmers can expect a very positive welcome.  The #1 response I got today was, "It is about time this happened."
