New Jersey cannabis trade group investigating itself

The New Jersey Cannabis Industry Association (NJCIA) paid $7,500 to an outside consultant to investigate potential “ethical concerns” within its own operations.

NJ.com reported that a three-member subcommittee recommended hiring an “independent, outside professional” to present its investigation to the full board.

The specific allegations were not mentioned in a letter from the subcommittee, but an unnamed source told NJ.com that the issues facing the group include “insider dealings, inappropriate disclosures and possible sexual indiscretions.”

The association’s subcommittee hired consultant Andrew Botwin to conduct the investigation of NJCIA, which counts about 80 members.

Members include “prominent” New Jersey law firms, dispensary operators and national marijuana companies, according to NJ.com.

    Hilarious!! And this internal “investigation” into ” “insider dealings, inappropriate disclosures and possible sexual indiscretions” by a paid consultant is supposed to prove something? Sounds like it’s time for the NJ DA to investigate the business activity of this “association” and its leadership from the President on down.
