Today on Liquid Lunch the Cork Dorks met with Don from Turtle Rock Vineyards as well as Cannabis Industry Consultant Sean Donahoe and Shawn Sherman of Golden Apple Cannabis to talk about recent developments in local cannabis law. Stream the entire show with the player below!
Recently the SLO County board of supervisors decided on cannabis regulations, and as it stands the county will not allow store-front shops and may stop production for several local growers when the regulations go into place in January. Only a handful of current local growers currently qualify to grow under the new regulations, effectively putting many other local growers out of business. Sean believes that the struggle to compromise with city regulators will have a negative economic impact on the county, and hopes that the board of supervisors can compromise with the public to make some revisions soon.
Don Burns from Turtle Rock Vineyards also joined us in studio to share some of their wines, including their amazing 2016 Willow White that Adam could not get enough of. Turtle Rock just opened a new tasting room over at Tin City in Paso; check out their new location and see their full line-up of wines at their website here: www.turtlerockvineyards.com
