The crackdown on unlicensed cannabis dispensaries in New York continues, with the I’m Stuck chain facing significant fines following a court order. Owner David Tulley must provide sales and bank records by March 16 for his now-closed Cayuga County locations, according to The Citizen.
With fines reaching up to $20,000 per day post-cease order, Tulley’s penalties could exceed $2 million for violations tied to his establishments in Auburn and Aurelius, highlighting the state’s intensified enforcement efforts against illegal cannabis sales.
The state’s Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) is leveraging a comprehensive enforcement strategy, incorporating labor, tax, and cannabis laws to impose hefty fines on non-compliant businesses.
As the legal cannabis market in New York expands, the state has shut down I’m Stuck and similar “gray market” dispensaries, marking a significant step in establishing a regulated industry. Tulley also had an operation in Ontario, Wayne County, which was shut down after raids.
