Also, Glass House Farms reportedly has merged his company with Mercer Park Brand Acquisition Corp, a move that will allow his company to go public on the Canadian stock exchange, and infuse capital to allow for a massive California expansion. 

The company, run by Graham Farrar, has a cannabis dispensary in Santa Barbara with two more planned in Isla Vista and Santa Ynez. 

Meanwhile, Santa Barbara attorney Amy Steinfeld will be a part of “Women Making Waves in Cannabis” event being held virtually on May 20. Topics include investing, cultivation, research and marketing. Tickets for the event can be purchased at https://lnkd.in/gV3Cxdr 

And, the former Santa Barbara Police Department spokesman Anthony Wagner apparently has been cleared of conflict-of-interest claims regarding the cannabis dispensary license selection process. 

The city hired a consultant to look into the matter, which prompted Wagner was put on leave from his job in March. The issue stemmed from a magazine article regarding Golden State Greens. That firm was one of a trio of cannabis companies to obtain a license in Santa Barbara’s selection process.
