In an event announcement, Thilman urged members of the public to participate in order to help shape what kind of local cannabis industry they’d like to see on the coast. “Whether you are in the city or not, every local regulation scheme affects the surrounding area and spreads either a supportive, embracing attitude toward cannabis — or a continuation of the “criminalization” of our community by perpetuating prohibition-era ideas” she wrote.
