As the presidential candidates make various stops around New York ahead of the state’s April 19 primary, a medical marijuana company is asking that candidates clarify their positions on medical cannabis.
Vireo Health of New York, one of five companies licensed to produce and sell medical cannabis in the state, is inviting the five presidential candidates to visit its cultivation and lab facilities at Tryon Technology Park in Fulton County. After the tour, candidates will be asked to make a public statement clarifying their positions on medical cannabis. Vireo is asking candidates who are unable to visit the facility before New York’s primary to make a public statement on the issue. Vireo’s April 11 letter has gone to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, both Democrats, along with Republicans Donald Trump, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Ohio Governor John Kasich.
