Megan Schnabel is a business reporter with the online news site Cardinal News. She interviewed two appointees from Southwest Virginia.
Bette Brand is the lone member of the state’s Cannabis Control Authority from west of Richmond. The other appointee is Dr. Cynthia Morrow, director of the Roanoke City-Alleghany Health District. She's now part of the Cannabis Public Health Advisory Council, and as of now, the only appointee from Southwest or Southside Virginia.
