    Many thanks to you, Jazmin, for taking the time to respond. ? Our leaders in NY may never let go of their fears about cannabis flower. It’s a f#%^*! nightmare for cannabis entrepreneurs to live in this state, even with an official “medical marihuana” program.

  2. Hi Lawrence,

    Thanks so much for your kind words. I’ve been up to Albany and also down to DC twice this year. Since we’re founded on entrepreneurship, we’re focused on the states that allow more people to start businesses for now. Hopefully New York will be inspired by the success of other programs and will allow more patients to access the medicine they need.

    From the bottom of my heart, Jazmin Hupp, I love your work on behalf of cannabis plants. For way too long, these magnificent gifts from Gaia have been routinely misunderstood and even slandered in our society. But please let me know: When will you and the ladies start investing some time and effort in the Capital Region of New York? Albany, in fact, is the actual seat of the Empire State’s power. I can assure you that nearly all lawmakers in the state Capitol building, and especially New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, HATE the idea of letting New Yorkers grow cannabis plants. There is so little freedom for cannabis in NY state as a whole, only the aggressive anti-“marihuana” actions of the NY State Police, local sheriffs and district attorneys, and even village cops–all of them drooling over asset forfeiture $ and aided by agents from giant federal bureaucracies like the Drug Enforcement Administration. It’s just more anti-cannabis tyranny for New Yorkers, guaranteed, without Women Grow watering some new green hopes in Albany.
