It’s not every day that WTEN ABC News 10 Albany comes knocking on the door of a small independent Massachusetts marijuana dispensary, seeking perspective and context of the blossoming legalization movement and adult-use cannabis industry rising in New York State.
But when that day comes, it’s good to be ready.
Like when Pittsfield native and ABC News 10 Albany anchor Ryan Peterson swing through to our shop a couple weeks back for this special report on “Going Green”, New York state’s ongoing work to work out the details in their nascent legal cannabis industry after passing legalization for the Empire State.
From the segment SPECIAL REPORT: GOING GREEN on WTEN ABC News 10 Albany:
“Hands down, the responsive is massive. They love us here,” says Canna Provisions CEO Meg Sanders.
Sanders owns Canna Provisions in Lee, Massachusetts. Nine years ago she worked directly with the governor of Colorado to develop its updated cannabis laws, and then led the way by opening one of the first recreational dispensaries in the country. Colorado and Washington State were the first to legalize adult-use in 2012.”
Meg Sanders was consulted and helped draft New York’s medical marijuana law. She’s been busy with her operation in Berkshire County and did not have a hand in the just-passed marijuana regulation and taxation act.
She hopes those who were negatively impacted by the drug war are moved to the front of the line when it comes to obtaining a license.
She said, “What I always say to any state that’s coming online is, please make sure that you put equity, and people that have been disproportionately affected by the drug war, first.”
