MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Cannabis retailers will visit the Statehouse on Wednesday to talk about a new industry trade group and efforts to modify some state regulations.

The Cannabis Retailers Association includes over a dozen retailers including the owners of Zenbarn Farms, Capital Cannabis Company, and Valley Meade.

The group says their goal is to address the pitfalls seen in other states and the mission to maintain a sustainable cannabis market in Vermont. They have identified several key policy issues including repealing the state’s tax on vape cartridges and amending what they call onerous advertising rules.

They will meet at 11 a.m. on Wednesday in the Cedar Creek Room at the Statehouse.
