PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) –Almost a full year after signing marijuana legalization into law, Gov. Dan McKee has finally named his three picks for the new Cannabis Control Commission, which will oversee and regulate the industry.
McKee sent the names of Kimberly Ahern, Robert Jacquard and Layi Oduyingbo to the Senate for consideration.
The R.I. Cannabis Act, which legalized cannabis for recreational use, had called for the governor to name his picks within 40 days of the bill becoming law. McKee signed it into law on May 25 of last year.
