Barclay Damon Live: The Cannabis Counselor, With Aleece Burgio—"New York State's Hemp Program, Featuring NYS Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo"

This week, Aleece interviews New York State Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo, the pioneer of the hemp pilot program in New York State in 2015, about the future of hemp now that adult-use cannabis is legal. New York is in a good position to be a leader in the hemp industry in the country. Assemblywoman Lupardo hopes that the focus shifts from CBD products to the benefits of hemp fiber and grain, and that the rules and regulations will provide a solid framework for other varietals of industrial hemp beyond CBD products. They also discuss the MRTA’s provisions for distressed farmers and MWBEs, pushback on the regulations regarding the sale of flower, and workarounds for FDA and federal oversight. Tune in to hear more of Aleece and Assemblywoman Lupardo’s insights on New York State’s hemp program and how the MRTA’s rules and regulations will affect it.
