Recreational Marijuana: A Grower’s Perspective, Parts 1 and 2

Chelan County recreational marijuana farmers formed the Central Washington Growers Association to educate stakeholders and community members on the impacts of the industry, said Ray Schmitten, co-owner of Zion Botanicals outside of Cashmere. He said the membership-based industry group focuses on providing economic impact data on legalized marijuana or cannabis production and processing.
In this four-part series, Dan Langager talks with Schmitten in the KOHO studios for his perspective on recreational marijuana and its production.
In part one, they discuss Initiative 502, the formation of the association and starting a grow operation.

In part two, they discuss how marijuana is grown, the infrastructure needed and Schmitten’s desire to diversify their crops.
