Where do you see the cannabis industry in New York State in five years?
I feel New York State cannabis will be the most DIVERSE industry in the country thanks to what was outlined in the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act. It will be a direct reflection of our cannabis community.
What attracted you to the cannabis industry?
Although I’ve been a consumer since college, I became a cannabis advocate due to my uncle’s illness. He battled with PTSD (he was a veteran) and then cancer. Cannabis helped him manage his PTSD and pain during his cancer treatments. Cannabis is medicine!
