WASHINGTON: It was a full day of gathering information about legalizing marijuana.
In a whirlwind tour, a group from the Virgin Islands visited various marijuana industry facilities – including recreational pot shops and a medicinal marijuana processing facility – and attended a “high” tea with a cannabis industry trade group in Washington on Tuesday.
There was also a lecture by a neurologist during a standing-room only meeting of a small marijuana growers alliance on a rural island off Seattle.
Sen. Terrence Nelson is on a fact-finding tour, visiting Washington and Colorado to look at their experiences in legalizing marijuana. Nelson invited residents from the territory to come along, and a small group is with him.
