Barclay Damon Live: The Cannabis Counselor, With Aleece Burgio—"Season 1 Finale: Senator Cooney's Bill"

This week’s episode closes out season one of the Cannabis Counselor. Aleece discusses Senator Cooney’s bill (senate bill S7295), which is currently under review by the NYS Senate Rules Committee, that seeks to amend the cannabis law to require the board of the Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) to establish an adult-use cultivator provisional license in New York State. The difficulty surrounding nominating, appointing, and confirming the candidates for the seven open positions in the OCM has caused delays in the issuance of adult-use cultivators’ licenses. If OCM formation delays continue, Senator Cooney’s bill would allow for the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets to take over to establish and issue provisional cultivators’ licenses. This gives cultivators the opportunity to plant their seeds and harvest their crop, putting cannabis products on retail shelves sooner. The bill may be of particular interest to hemp cultivators because they already have the infrastructure in place to begin cultivating as soon as they have received a license. Tune in to hear more about the details of Senator Cooney’s bill, and thank you for listening to the first season of the Cannabis Counselor.
