Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson was joined this week by Chair of the New York State Office of Cannabis Tremaine Wright and Director of External Affairs Erin Hammond for an open forum for the Bronx community, featuring a panel discussion on the legalization of cannabis and how we can transform this industry to serve as an economic engine for communities that have been historically criminalized and hurt by the war on drugs.

The event was live-streamed by BronxNet and moderated by News 12 Reporter Marisa Marcellino.

The 90-minute panel discussion covering the legalization of cannabis; retail dispensary operations and compliance; social equity and access; and opportunities for funding and business development, will be followed by a question-and-answer session and networking. The forum was an opportunity for the community to ask questions, raise concerns and learn more about the local growth and future development of the cannabis industry.
