New York Issues More Cannabis Business Licenses, Rules

New York Cannabis Control Board awarded more licenses for growers and processors but still no retail establishments.

New York authorities on Tuesday handed out 29 more cannabis business permits, codified home marijuana cultivation for medical marijuana patients, adopted rules to go along with personal cultivation, and named a new regulator to the state’s Office of Cannabis Management.

According to Syracuse.com, the New York Cannabis Control Board awarded conditional business licenses to 19 cultivators and 10 processors, which brings the total number of licensed growers to 261 and the total number of processors to 25.

The window for retail license applications opened last month, but thus far no store permits have been granted.

The board this week also issued regulations to govern MMJ home cultivation, which allows registered patients to grow as many as six plants of their own and for caregivers  to grow up to 12 plants.

The step is a major revision for New York’s MMJ program, which until now had prohibited home cultivation.

The board also appointed Patricia Heer to be the Office of Cannabis Management’s new deputy general counsel.
