PHOENIX, Jan. 12, 2023 — TILT Holdings Inc. (“TILT” or the “Company”) (NEO: TILT) (OTCQX: TLLTF), a global provider of cannabis business solutions that include inhalation technologies, cultivation, manufacturing, processing, brand development and retail, today announced its Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) Gary Santo has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the National Cannabis Roundtable (“NCR”). Founded in 2019, NCR is a non-partisan alliance of cannabis companies and ancillary services and solutions providers working to advance cannabis policy in the United States.
“The National Cannabis Roundtable has been and continues to be at the forefront of federal cannabis policy,” said Gary Santo, TILT’s CEO. “While the industry made some important gains, including a presidential pardon of all federal convictions for simple possession of marijuana and the review of the scheduling of cannabis under federal law, unfortunately, the SAFE Banking Act failed to pass Congress. The failure of the SAFE Banking Act to pass the Senate shows once again there is still more work to be done. As a member of the NCR, TILT will continue to advocate for access to traditional financial services and capital markets for cannabis businesses, as well as the elimination of tax barriers such as 280E.”
Continued Santo, “TILT will fully support NCR’s legislative priorities around decriminalizing cannabis, maintaining business continuity, ensuring consumer and worker safety, promoting social equity, and remediating harms from prohibition.”
“There is a tremendous amount of work to be done and a steep learning curve when it comes to cannabis reform,” said NCR Executive Director Saphira Galoob. “Each member brings a unique perspective to NCR’s advocacy efforts, and we look forward to having TILT represented on our leadership team.”
