An unlicensed cannabis chain known as “I’m Stuck,” operating in Cayuga and Wayne counties is under investigation for allegedly selling $200 worth of cannabis products to a minor during an undercover operation by the Attorney General’s office.
The owner, David Tulley, who lacks the required two years of business experience to obtain a license in New York, asserts that he has never sold to minors and describes his operation as a consulting and marketing firm that educates the public and gives away free samples. He also told media outlets before his court appearance that he’s ready to go to war with the state.
Tulley, who believes he should be eligible for a conditional adult-use retail dispensary license due to his previous marijuana convictions, will appear in Wayne County Court later today.
If convicted, he could face millions of dollars in penalties. His defense includes the claim that his business is focused on education rather than sales, stating, “We educate the public about products and services. After a good education from ‘I’m stuck’, we give you a free sample, not to sell you a product but because the licensed stores aren’t talking to you about their products at all.”
