CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PRESS RELEASE–Cresco Labs, one of the largest vertically integrated multistate cannabis operators in the United States, has provided an update on its national response to COVID-19. Cresco Labs views the health and safety of its customers, patients and employees as its number one responsibility during this challenging time.

The company will continue to operate all of its dispensaries during regularly scheduled hours, as permitted, to ensure that the tens-of-thousands of patients and consumers that rely on its cannabis products for their daily wellness and quality of life continue to have access to them. In addition, Cresco Labs has heightened its already-stringent sanitation measures and implemented procedures at the retail level to ensure adequate social distancing between employees and consumers. Some of these measures include: driving traffic to alternative channels, including online ordering; text message staging notifications; home delivery (where applicable); and curbside pickup, which will be launching next week in Illinois.

Cresco’s cultivation and production operations will continue to operate with elevated sanitation, quality and safety programs, which have been designed to mirror the highest standards used by food and beverage manufacturers across the country. In accordance with the guidance provided by the CDC, and with support from the company’s Public Health and Epidemiology consultant, Cresco is taking every step possible to provide the healthiest environment at its facilities nationwide.

« We have spent the last weeks preparing our organization to best manage this unique circumstance. We have approached this matter from the perspective of a responsible employer, a manufacturer, a retailer, a community member and an industry leader – we are responsible to all of our stakeholders. We have been working side-by-side with our state administrations to provide counsel regarding best practices and potential solutions that will both accomplish the social imperative to stop the spread of COVID-19 while ensuring that patients and all customers have the products they rely on for their health and wellness. Accordingly, many government agencies have deemed cannabis products ‘essential’ in the communities that Cresco Labs operates in and as medical providers, we take our obligations during the current period of global uncertainty very seriously. Many of our dispensaries are classified in the same category as pharmacies that people depend on as trusted access points for prescription medicine and continuing to provide that access is a fundamental responsibility. We have always viewed ourselves as responsible stewards of this industry first and foremost – we fundamentally embrace our role as leaders in creating sustainable state programs within which we operate,” said Charlie Bachtell, Cresco Labs’ CEO and co-founder.

Bachtell continued, “It is in the most difficult times where the foundation of an organization matters, and character is revealed – this is when leaders lead. Over the last year we have focused intently on building the management and operational foundation that would not only support scalability but would successfully handle all of the variables associated with an emerging and constantly-evolving industry. I’m thankful that Cresco can rely on a team with decades of senior leadership experience in safe manufacturing and supply-chain management from companies like Lifeway Foods, Abbott, AbbVie, and Johnson & Johnson, as well as a retail team that has a track record of driving responsible performance during challenging times at companies like Starbucks, Apple and Walgreens. Together, backed by our best-in-class management team, 1,200+ team members deeply committed to the wellbeing of our patients/consumers, strategic operational footprint, and strength of balance sheet, Cresco will successfully manage through this uncertainty and continue to be the most important company in cannabis.”

The company will provide an update regarding the impacts of COVID-19 during its fourth quarter fiscal 2019 earnings call.

Pétition ASBL Cannabis Belgique

Pourquoi une pétition ?

Nous sommes des personnes qui en avons assez de devoir aller dans la rue et avoir affaire à des réseaux criminels sans savoir où cela va nous conduire par après.

Nous sommes des personnes ayant des maladies, qui pour certaines sont rares, et utilisant pour médication le cannabis sous diverses formes (CBD,THC,THCv,CBDa,,,) sous l'accord de notre médecin.

Nous sommes des personnes responsables et honnêtes qui avons une vie épanouie et sans problèmes de vie ou sociaux.

Nous avons également une passion pour la plante de cannabis en elle-même et la cultiver est notre bonheur. De plus, nous pouvons nous soigner avec notre médication sans avoir peur des produits ou autres additifs contenus dans une plante que l'on peut trouver autre part.

Nous souhaitons pouvoir avoir notre médicament dans les normes de la santé publique, car un cannabis sain aide à réduire les frais de santé parfois conséquents pour la collectivité et le malade lui-même.

Nous sommes également des personnes responsables avec un rôle dans la société qui en avons assez d’être considérés comme des « hippies ou autres drogués », nous avons juste choisi notre médication et celle-ci a apporté les preuves de son efficacité dans le monde.

Nous connaissons déjà les produits dérivés comme le CBD et le THC que nous maîtrisons pour nous aider dans notre maladie « Je précise que nous ne sommes pas médecin et que nous nous basons sur 20 ans d’expérience médicale du cannabis des membres de notre ASBL et l'avis du médecin de famille ».

Nous désirons simplement ne plus nous cacher, et pouvoir aider les autres personnes le souhaitant.

Nous somme soucieux des ados et de la prévention à leur égard. Effectivement, nous sommes les acteurs parfaits pour répondre aux questions qu’ils se posent vu notre expérience cannabique et, de plus, nous pourrons leur expliquer les risques qu’ils encourent en achetant du cannabis dans la rue.
