Breaking News: Former CEO of Jamaica’s Cannabis Licencing Authority Joins CROP’s Executive Advisory Team

CROP Infrastructure Corp. (OTC: CRXPF) (CSE: CROP) announced today the appointment of Greg Douglas to the Executive Advisory Board who will have a special focus on CROP’s Jamaica operations.

CROP Infrastructure CEO, Michael Yorke, stated, “Greg can be considered one of the foremost authorities on the Jamaican cannabis industry. He will be of considerable assistance to CROP as the business develops there.

“Greg has the invaluable ability to effectively interact with stakeholders from both the private and public sectors and his knowledge of the industry, both in the Caribbean and North America, is truly extensive and that will be of great benefit to CROP as it expands even further internationally.”

Greg Douglas formally entered the Cannabis space in 2015 when he joined the Bureau of Standards Jamaica as their Management Information Systems (MIS) Manager. Shortly after joining the Bureau he was named as the Project Coordinator for a proposed Medical Cannabis (Ganja) Track and Trace Pilot Project.

Through this Greg was exposed to compliance mechanisms used in Colorado, touring state facilities which increased his understanding and appreciation of the industry while building relationships with Colorado’s compliance agency, along with local businesses.

Greg is now known internally at the Bureau as the ‘Ganja Man’ and externally by stakeholders as the ‘Bureau Man’. During April to November 2017 Greg was seconded to the Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) as their CEO. While there he became a part of history issuing the first commercial licenses.

He also sought to streamline internal processes to increase the efficiency of the Authority. He was part of the CLA team that visited Canada where the team met with both Canadian Government entities and officials (Health Canada, MP Bill Blair, Department of Finance), also with resident offices of the Jamaica Tourist Board and JAMPRO.

Greg resumed his duties at the Bureau of Standards in January 2018 and is engaged as a member of the team responsible for the creation of standards within the cannabis industry in Jamaica.
