Miami-based multistate cannabis operator Ayr Wellness eliminated 180 jobs across the United States, a spokesperson confirmed to MJBizDaily.
The company has roughly 2,700 employees across the country.
“This decision was not made lightly but was a necessary part of the Company’s overall plan to improve efficiency and realign key priorities,” Ayr said in a statement.
“Ayr is grateful for the collective contributions of these team members and is working to support their transitions from Ayr.”
The terminations come amid a wave of layoffs in the cannabis industry.
Meanwhile, Ayr said on Jan. 27 it had canceled its acquisition of Chicago’s Dispensary 33, a deal worth about $55 million in cash, stock and seller notes.
