CT cannabis chief resigns for job with state Treasurer

The CT Insider reports

Andréa Comer, the point person for Connecticut’s recreational, “adult-use” cannabis market, has resigned from her job at the state Department of Consumer Protection, effective at the end of the month, to become chief of staff for incoming state Treasurer Erick Russell.

Comer is overseeing the launch of the fully regulated cannabis marketplace as deputy commissioner at DCP and as chair of the Social Equity Council, which ensures participation in the industry by people from disadvantaged areas.  She leaves for the new post, which starts as state constitutional officers are sworn in Jan. 4, just days before the Jan. 10 opening of Connecticut’s first stores selling marijuana to people without a medical permit.

On the unpaid Social Equity Council, Comer is the designee of DCP Commissioner Michelle H. Seagull and was appointed chair by Gov. Ned Lamont. The department has not named a replacement for Comer in either position.
