Cuomo Screws NY’s Medical Marijuana Industry

Don’t Let the Screen Door Hit You on the Way Out… Governor Cuomo unveiled his proposed budget (page 200 of this link) which includes a recreational marijuana law called the Cannabis Regulation and Taxation Act. For those who are invested in the big marijuana companies it is disappointing but small businesses will be happy (except New York is the least friendly state to business in the nation). For the companies who have invested in New York for the Governor’s Medical Marijuana plan, he is thanking them with taking away their ability to expand into recreational marijuana and allowing medical marijuana patients to grow their own – a double whammy likely to make NY a disaster for them.  The three tier distribution model according to the governor’s speech will make sure the licenses don’t just go to the dreaded rich people.  He is dreaming of Washington and Sandra Lee will be the next Dolly Madison.  Call Your Legislators – Tell Them You Want Real Jobs Cue the lobbyists and legislators to start negotiating this turkey.  Contact your state legislators now – there is still time to correct this turkey.  There are lots of bombs in the Governor’s proposed budget…
