The legislative picks for the new cannabis board are former state senator Jen Metzger and an attorney from Buffalo, Adam Perry.
The board was created to monitor the commercial cannabis industry in the state of New York and start the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act.
The tasks the board will complete include creating and enforcing regulations, granting licenses, and watching over permitting processes for the program.
The cannabis business is expected to become a multi-million dollar industry.
