I remember when Vireo health got caught doing virtually the same exact thing in NY.. transporting a massive amount of cannabis oil from their facility in Minnesota to New York... and then SOLD IT TO MEDICAL PATIENTS in NY. Inexplicably, they experienced a very very different outcome.
Even Assistant County Attorney Shane Simonds, the lead prosecutor in that case, described it as “a uniquely lenient outcome of a criminal case.”
“Medical marijuana in New York: Deal reached on smuggling charges by ex-Vireo Health workers
Two former cannabis company officers accused of smuggling medical marijuana from Minnesota to New York are expected to have criminal charges dismissed after they complete community service.
The ex-officers of Vireo, which has medical marijuana dispensaries in White Plains and Johnson City, Broome County, faced felony charges based on allegations they used the company’s armored vehicle to illegally transport $500,000 of marijuana oils from Minnesota to New York.
The case focused on whether state laws sufficiently addressed smuggling medical marijuana across state borders.”
