NCR Forms Advisory Board to Advance Cannabis Reform Priorities

The National Cannabis Roundtable has formed the NCR Advisory Board, comprised of prominent cannabis thought leaders from around the nation, to advance their three primary priorities for federal cannabis reform: to nurture a growing industry, protect consumers and foster social equity.

Saphira Galoob, NCR Executive Director, said “As cannabis reform gains momentum in this Congress, we wanted to bring another level of perspective to the discussion. Our advisory board members will help inform the reform movement on Capitol Hill and we look forward to leveraging their expertise to thoughtfully guide legislative and regulatory efforts.”

NCR’s Honorary Co-Chair, former Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner said, “For meaningful progress on issues where we can agree, like on cannabis policy, there is great complexity and a great need for good information.”

Mr. Boehner’s fellow NCR Honorary Co-Chair, former Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius added, “The members of this advisory board have already distinguished themselves as leaders in the national cannabis discussion and we look forward to putting their expertise to work on behalf of all stakeholders.”
