Local Marijuana Growers Hold Meeting in Aberdeen
Over 50 people came out to the South Shore Mall on Saturday for the first public meeting of the North West Growers Association. The crowd featured people seemingly from all walks of life. From children to the elderly, business dress to jeans and t-shirts. All of them curious about the process proposed by the NWGA.
Jim Harrison and Charles Feick started the LLC with the goal of acquiring a producer license to “grow very large amounts of marijuana for the State of Washington”.
A representative from the Washington Cannabis Association was also on hand and said that the Olympic Peninsula produces some of the best marijuana in the world. A product he once called the “Bordeaux of Bud”. Both NWGA and WCA recommended that any growers looking to supply the statewide market should affiliate themselves with a group.
Feick said that NWGA will require annual dues to be a member, totalling $500 per year. This includes a $100 background check to make sure they can trust their members. This prevents them from people convicted of “murder, rape, and mayhem” according to Feick.
As for their immediate plans, Feick said that on Sunday the NWGA will be looking at 135 acres of agriculturally zoned land in Brady to continue their plan of initiating an IPO and becoming a publicly traded company in 3 years.
