Queens lawmaker to launch a cannabis workforce training initiative in Far Rockaway


State Senator James Sanders is partnering with the Cannabis Hub to launch his “Breaking Ground” initiative — the first-of-its-kind cannabis workforce training in the nation for people who want to start a business or simply get a job in the emerging cannabis industry.

The newest industry will be coming soon to New York, made possible by the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA), and Sanders will share details of the initiative in Far Rockaway on Thursday.
