“We are honored to have Tara as a member of our leadership team,” said NJCBA President Scott Rudder. “She brings a truly unique perspective to our ongoing efforts to legalize adult-use cannabis and expand access to medical cannabis. Tara has the industry expertise and the business savvy we need to help bring both of these issues across the finish line.”
At Blazin' Bakery, Tara optimizes brownie mixes so anyone can make potent DIY edibles at home with no experience needed. Her products are sold in more than 1,000 shops nationally. Blazin’ Bakery will also be launching a full line of cannabis-infused edibles in 2019. With close to a decade of cannabis industry experience, Tara applies her deep knowledge base and professional experience to help advance legalization in New Jersey. She also acts as a consultant for creating and manufacturing edibles and cannabis products. For more information about Tara and her product line, visit www.BlazinBakery.com.
“My passion for the cannabis industry, and the positive impact it can have for patients and our communities, is why I entered the market nearly ten years ago,” said Tara. “I’m excited to bring my years of experience to the benefit of the NJCBA, its membership and the entire cannabis business community.”
Tara joins the NJCBA as momentum continues to build on cannabis related issues in New Jersey. Senate President Sweeney recently commented that he is confident both the Senate and Assembly will have the votes necessary to pass legislation legalizing adult-use cannabis and expanding medical cannabis in the next few weeks. In addition, media outlets have reported that bill sponsors in both the Senate and Assembly have agreed on crucial aspects of potential legislation.
