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 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.
