Marijuana advocates look to incoming Hochul to speed up state’s legal weed rollout

Backers of New York’s successful push to legalize recreational marijuana are pinning their hope on incoming Gov. Kathy Hochul to give the stalled rollout process a shot in the arm.

Under Gov. Andrew Cuomo, implementation of New York’s adult-use program has been stuck in neutral, according to Michael Hiller, an attorney specializing in cannabis law. But Hochul’s stance on the legalization of recreational marijuana suggests she will make it a priority when she takes office. “Lt. Gov. Hochul’s approach to legalization, which appears to be motivated by her desire to raise tax revenue, appears to be more genuine and focused,” Hiller said.

PharmaCann, one of the 10 original cannabis licensees in New York, has confidentially filed for an initial public offering that could value it at well over $1 billion, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The planned IPO would help PharmaCann raise funds before New York state begins recreational weed sales, expected sometime next year. The IPO could take place this fall, one of the sources said.

PharmaCann, which operates in five other U.S. states, is likely to seek to dual-list its shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange and for over-the-counter trading in the United States, one of the sources said.

Cannabis industry group pushes 'green seal' and tax credits

ALBANY — A certification process highlighting energy-efficient cannabis cultivators and a tax credit to complement it are key sustainability proposals of an industry white paper released Tuesday by New York’s Castetter Cannabis Group. The paper also called for state regulators to develop a strategy for data collection and analysis of license holders’ operations.

Its recommendations reinforce lawmakers’ urgency to minimize harm to the the state’s fledgling industry, but suggest a divergent strategy centered on incentives rather than efficiency limits.

“We’re advocating for a performance-based approach,” said Kate Hruby, the group’s lead policy analyst and co-author of the paper.

I-Team: NYC Area Pediatricians See Sharp Rise in Kids Ingesting Marijuana Edibles

One local hospital says they're now treating at least a couple of young children every month for toxic exposure to edibles — and they're warning parents to lock up their pot treats

A skyrocketing number of children in the tri-state are inadvertently ingesting marijuana edibles, and legislators say there's a void in New York's emerging pot regulations that isn't helping the situation.

The scary trend began before New York State legalized recreational marijuana back in March, going from six children in the NYC metropolitan area poisoned by edibles in 2018, to 32 in 2019 and 127 in 2020, according to regional poison control officials.
