On Thursday, November 5th New Economy Consulting (NEC) and cannabis industry leaders will hold a fundraiser for State Treasurer and Portland Mayoral Candidate Ted Wheeler. The intimate gathering will be held downtown at 7pm in the EcoTrust building and will focus on issues that directly relate to the Cannabis industry in Portland and across the state – such as regulations, growth, and the industry’s immediate need for banking reform.

Sam Chapman, Founding Partner at NEC, feels that “It is absolutely vital that candidates running for political office in Oregon understand the importance of creating pragmatic regulations that keep public safety at the forefront of the conversation. Treasurer Wheeler is hands down one of the most proactive candidates speaking on the need for banking reforms within the cannabis industry and we are excited to throw our support behind him as the next Mayor of Portland.”

At a recent cannabis round table event, Wheeler said: “It’s obviously time to start paying the industry the respect it deserves – just as we should any regulated industry out there – especially one that makes such a huge impact on our economy. Requiring this industry to deal in high volume cash is not upholding the promise we made to Oregon’s citizens when they voted to legalize this industry.”

    Is the race for mayor of Portland really up for grabs??? Hopefully the winner of the election will be realistic and be loyal to the voters themselves, not some price gouging cartel folks who throw him a nice party which is supposedly for a political campaign which he basically has in the bag…

  2. People who need consultants don’t belong growing..

    The consultants do belong growing

    Or if you buy the answers to your college exams, does that mean you earned the test score?

    That is what this is..one person thinks they should be able to buy the answers to life because they can’t or are too lazy to figure it out on their own.

    People don’t understand that the grower must be the sole proprietor to be fully responsible for the grow. If you allow a lower skilled person have power/access to the grow, then things like this happen:
