Barclay Damon Live: The Cannabis Counselor, With Aleece Burgio—"The NYS Office of Cannabis Management"

This week, Aleece talks about the NYS Office of Cannabis Management and the news that’s coming out of Albany regarding who will be filling the open positions, with a focus on the chair of the board, executive director, and social equity director positions. Of particular interest is the fact that Norm Birenbaum has not been confirmed by many legislators as the executive director of the Office of Cannabis Management, despite having been selected by NYS Governor Cuomo as the director of the cannabis programs for New York State. Aleece suspects that the legislators are instead looking for someone who has more experience in the adult-use cannabis space and someone who is committed to championing the social equity provisions of the legislation. Check out this week’s episode to hear Aleece’s thoughts on this important aspect of New York’s adult-use cannabis legislation.
