Where do you see the cannabis industry in New York State in five years?
I see the cannabis industry becoming one of the leading industries in the state. I believe this industry is going to save many lives by reuniting families who have been broken by the incarceration of many during the times cannabis was outlawed.
What attracted you to the cannabis industry?
Helping to make sure Native Americans are not left out of the industry.
