Kansas Advocates Form Cannabis Chamber of Commerce

Ganjapreneur report

Cannabis advocates have formed the Kansas Cannabis Chamber of Commerce which will push for industry reforms.

Cannabis industry advocates have formed the Kansas Cannabis Chamber of Commerce despite broad medical cannabis reforms failing in the state Legislature earlier this year, the Kansas Reflector reports. Kansas is bordered by Colorado, which has legalized cannabis for adults, and Oklahoma and Missouri, which have legalized medical cannabis access.

Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly (R) in May signed a bill legalizing cannabis-derived oils with less than 5% THC for a limited number of patients. A more comprehensive medical cannabis bill was approved last session by the House but was not taken up by the Senate.

Heather Steppy, president of the new chamber of commerce and co-owner of the CBD business KC Hemp Co., noted in an interview with the Reflector Podcast that the cannabis industry “comes with a lot of nuances” and that the organization would advocate for industry reforms.
