Three Cannabis Companies Join New York Medical Cannabis Industry Association

The New York Medical Cannabis Industry Association (NYMCIA) announced that the association has added three well-known cannabis companies. Green Thumb Industries (GTI), Curaleaf, and Cresco Labs officially joined the NYMCIA. Since 2016, the NYMCIA has been advocating for medical cannabis patients and works to ensure that the medical cannabis program is still serving them if a recreational system were to be put in place. The association advocates for in-depth legislation that focuses on economic issues, social equity programs, and fairness issues.

Ngiste Abebe, President of the NYMCIA and Director of Public Policy for Columbia Care, stated: “Understanding that social equity will, and should, be at the forefront of this discussion, we’re prepared to be an advocate and source of investment for the communities that have been most adversely impacted by the war on drugs. We will also continue to protect – and if possible, expand – access to medical cannabis for New Yorkers who need it, regardless of their income level or where they live in the state.”

The governor of New York has an early proposal on recreational adult-use cannabis legislation and some details aren’t covered yet. One key detail that is still up in the air is most important to the NYMCIA as it covers the legality of medical cannabis and recreational cannabis cohabitation. The association believes that the combination of both medical and recreational in one location is the most effective way to go for the implementation of a new recreational cannabis program in New York.

All other states with a recreational cannabis program that came after a medical cannabis program allow for both products to be sold in the same location.
