The New York Office of Cannabis Management has removed a video from its YouTube channel that contained heated criticisms of the state’s adult-use cannabis program roll-out. Regulators said they are planning to re-upload the video.

In a video previously posted online of its September 12 meeting, New York’s Office of Cannabis Management scrubbed the public comment period, which included complaints about the rollout of the adult-use cannabis program by growers, retailers, and licensees, according to report by The City. As of Wednesday morning, the video was no longer available on YouTube, with an error message saying it had been “removed by the uploader.” 

Comments removed from the video, prior to it being taken offline, included those by Tess Interlicchia, a cannabis farmer, who told the Cannabis Control Board that her business has “lost millions of dollars.”
