A handful of issues that are notable from the press release itself:
- It appears that Governor Hochul will be attending. If she does, it is yet a further indicator that the Governor is really prioritizing the institution of a working hashish business in New York. Clearly, community appearances never necessarily mean much with out rules, rules, apps obtained, and licenses issued, but it surely seems excellent.
- The CCB’s assembly will be the to start with significant community appearances made by CCB Chairwoman Tremaine Wright and OCM Executive Director Chris Alexander given that their respective appointments (we protected that listed here). We are thrilled to hear exactly where they stand on the significant challenges for the CCB’s procedures and laws, social fairness, and the timeline for the OCM’s issuance of licenses.
- To that finish, notably absent from the assembly agenda is just about anything connected to a timeline for the issuance of the regulations and restrictions. We hope that the timing will be reviewed as element of the “Executive Director Report.” With absolutely everyone clamoring for a timeline for the guidelines and laws to be released (it’s truly all any individual in New York’s cannabis industry talks about), it would be annoying (to say the least) if the CCB and OCM do not deliver any facts.
Keep tuned for our summary of the CCB’s first official assembly and all updates on developments in New York’s hashish marketplace!
