urban-gro, Inc., a global horticulture company that engineers and designs commercial Controlled Environment Agriculture facilities and integrates complex environmental equipment systems, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the National Cannabis Roundtable (NCR). urban-gro will be represented on the NCR Board by Chairman and CEO Bradley Nattrass.
The NCR is a non-partisan advocacy group focused on federal cannabis reform in the United States comprised of innovators, investors and employers across the spectrum of legal U.S. cannabis businesses. The NCR mission focuses on several fundamental priorities, all of which are critical components of cannabis reform in America, including: decriminalizing cannabis at the federal level, remediating the harm of the failed war on drugs, ensuring patient and consumer safety, protecting the integrity of state cannabis programs, and equitable financial treatment for cannabis businesses.
“With a long history of legislative advocacy, we’re honored to join the National Cannabis Roundtable, furthering the mission around federal cannabis legalization,” said Nattrass. “Membership not only reflects urban-gro’s position as an industry innovator committed to protecting the integrity of state programs in the ongoing movement, but also enables us to better serve our customers by remaining on the leading edge of any planned or proposed regulatory changes that may affect our industry, customers, or employees.”
NCR Executive Director Saphira Galoob said urban-gro will be a key strategic member of the organization.
“The commercial multi-state, multi-client crop-agnostic expertise they bring to NCR will help us advance the most effective and practical reforms for our members both within and beyond the cannabis industry.”
