Confirmed panelists (panel currently in formation) include Jennie Dixon, Missoula County land-use planner who led the county efforts to develop regulations for cannabis use; Courtney Cosgrove, Department of Revenue's Senior Cannabis Attorney; Kate Cholewa, government affairs specialist for the Montana Cannabis Industry Association; Faith Price, Community Preventions Coordinator with All Nations Health Center; and a local dispensary operator (TBD).
