“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.”
As the CEO of 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. 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.
With her help and leadership, we will be adding more events to our calendar, more benefits for our members and more ways for people to get engaged in the cannabis industry. Welcome, Tara!
