BUFFALO, NY- There are no plans to legalize marijuana for recreational use in New York, but that isn't stopping one businessman from envisioning a business opportunity.
Matt Herman, president of marijuana infrastructure company Cannabis Solutions, visited Lockport Monday to talk about marijuana legalization and the business opportunities that come with it.
Cannabis Solutions provides services for the cannabis industry in Colorado, where marijuana is legal.
Herman, a Lockport native, hopes to turn people in the Empire State on to the possible financial benefits of legalizing recreational marijuana.
"People see this legalization down the road, and they're desperate to throw their money into it," Herman said. "And they're Googling "marijuana penny stocks" and they're dumping it into there, because they're just so eager to get involved."
Herman also plans to give similar presentations in New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore and other cities across the country.
