Fresh Alternative Farms reached out to Senator Rolison of NYS Senate – 39th District regarding issues within the legalized adult-use cannabis industry in New York.

Attached is his response and actions to address our client’s and the greater industry’s concerns.


Dear Friend,

I would first like to thank you for your willingness to inform me both about the issues you face and the path forward to best address these concerns. Attached you will find two letters: a joint letter from the Cannabis Subcommittee on which I sit, and another letter which I sent to the Subcommittee Chair and others outlining your concerns.

Taking into account the information you have provided, I have called for increased transparency and communication from the Office of Cannabis Management and the Cannabis Control Board in their dealings with other parts of state government.

Furthermore, to ensure that New York State serves as an example to other states, I am advocating for an immediate increase in the number of licenses OCM can approve, the proper allocation of resources to manage the growing cannabis market, a crackdown on illegal sellers, and ensuring that businesses that are paying expenses will be given priority for their license.

Prioritizing the stability and safety of New York State’s cannabis market is one of my top concerns and we will continue to work aggressively to ensure that this market is not mismanaged and small businesses are heard. As always, please do not hesitate to contact my office in the future with any questions or concerns.

Very exciting to be recognized by Cornell University as a top startup coming out of the eLab accelerator class of 2022. We had the opportunity to share our progress at Demo Day on stage at the Statler Hall Auditorium. Thank you to all our colleagues and advisors who continue to support us on our journey to bring best practices and license navigation assistance to the budding New York cannabis community.
