The Organic Cannabis Association, dedicated to rigorous cultivation standards for the legal cannabis industry, today commended the State of Washington for taking the first step to provide an organic certification for the state’s marijuana cultivators.
Founding board member Ben Gelt, long involved in advocating for and developing standards for the cannabis industry noted: “The State of Washington has truly taken a leadership role by recognizing the importance of transparency and consumer protection in the cannabis industry. We firmly believe this is the first of many states to come, and serves to highlight the relevance of OCA’s mission. We look forward to working with states like Washington to develop a coherent standard for the industry as a whole and to be advocates state-by-state to ensure that both consumers and the industry have the opportunity to be transparent and meet market demands.”
