New York’s Cannabis Program can only be described one way: Broken. 

Despite lessons learned from other states and a goal to help those previously harmed, the program has faced significant financial and operational challenges, falling short of its intended success. With government officials labeling the rollout a disaster and promising an overhaul, the extent of the program’s issues is clear. Were these problems evident from the start, and how can they be fixed? We sat down with Neil Kaufman to break it all down and discuss the following:

  • Where everything went wrong
  • What Neil would do to fix it
  • The two-tier system and investment issues
