I hereby grant to my Attorney, for me and in my name, place and stead, the powers set forth below, granting unto my Attorney the authority to perform each and every act and thing requisite, necessary or proper to be done in the exercise of such powers, as fully to all intents and purposes as I might or could do in person, hereby ratifying and confirming any such action that my Attorneys, and any substitutes therefor, each acting alone, may lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue hereof:

 

  1. To execute, for and on my behalf, in my capacity as an “officer” (within the meaning of Rule 16a-1(f) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (together with the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder, the “Exchange Act”)) or director of Verano Holdings Corp. (the “Company”), Form 3, Form 4 and Form 5, and any amendments thereto, in accordance with Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act;

This Power of Attorney and the authority of my Attorney and any substitutes therefor hereunder shall not terminate on my disability but shall remain in full force and effect for so long as I am an officer, director or reporting insider of the Company and for such time thereafter as may be necessary to file any such Form 3, Form 4, Form 5, the insider profile and insider reports, and any amendments thereto, relating to the period during which I served as an officer, director or reporting insider of the Company, unless earlier revoked by me in a signed writing delivered to each of my Attorneys and any substitutes therefor. This Power of Attorney may be filed with the SEC or other applicable securities regulator as a confirming statement of the authority granted herein.

 

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 14th day of June, 2022.
