Full story after the jump.

The Maine Cannabis Union is partnering with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) to impact cannabis-related legislation and promote a sustainable and responsible cannabis industry. The Maine Cannabis Union also announced that it would accept adult-use cannabis business owners into its union after previously only accepting medical cannabis operators.

In a statement, IAM Eastern Territory General Vice President David Sullivan said the alliance “will elevate” the groups’ “collective voice in the corridors of power from Augusta to Washington, D.C.”

“Our mission is to chart a course for a sustainable and responsible industry, not just in Maine but across the nation.” — Sullivan in a press release 

The IAM said that the Cannabis Union’s decision to begin accepting adult-use operators as members “signals their commitment to embracing all sectors of the cannabis market.”

“By doing so, they aim to create a more comprehensive and inclusive community of professionals,” IAM said, “all working together to further the interests of the Maine cannabis industry.”

The groups came together at a recent Cannabis Union-hosted event in Sanford which IAM Eastern Territory Special Representative Tiwaan Bradley described as “a testament to our theme of harmony, unity, and community, which allowed us to bring together new members and industry stakeholders, all driven by a common goal.”

“By expanding our embrace to adult-use store owners and uniting for growth,” Bradley said, “we are well-positioned to navigate challenges and seize opportunities.”
