Site Educates New Yorkers On the Recent Legalization of Cannabis
Website for the Office of Cannabis Management Can Be Viewed Here
New York (STL.News) Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the website launch for the New York State Office of Cannabis Management. This website educates the public on the OCM’s regulatory structure which, with the Cannabis Control Board, will oversee the licensure, cultivation, production, distribution, sale and taxation of medical, adult-use and cannabinoid hemp within New York State. The website also provides resources for individuals seeking medical cannabis practitioners, caregivers and medical cannabis IDs as well as businesses seeking licensure to participate in adult-use, medical and cannabinoid hemp industries.
“Legalizing cannabis was the first step in this historic endeavor to right the wrongs of the past,” Governor Cuomo said. “The Office of Cannabis Management’s website provides critical preliminary information pending the creation of the Cannabis Control Board about the future of this industry as well as resources for individuals and businesses seeking information on the future of cannabis in New York State. The website outlines the comprehensive reforms this legislation enacts, and I know will be a valued resource for many as we move forward.”
On March 31, Governor Cuomo signed legislation legalizing adult-use cannabis, fulfilling a key component of his 2021 State of the State agenda.
