Compassionate Care Center of New York™ (CCCNY™), a biopharmaceutical company applying to become one of five registered organizations authorized in New York State to serve the condition-specific palliative needs of qualifying patients with safe and accessible pharmaceutical-grade therapeutics derived from the cannabis plant, has announced the formation of a leadership team.
The team consists of medical, regulatory and law enforcement experts, including gastroenterologist Dr. Larry I. Good; former executive vice president and vice chairman of CVS Corporation, Jerald Politzer; former New York State prosecutor Richard W. Lerner, Esq.; leading medical cannabis PTSD researcher Dr. Suzanne Sisley; regulatory affairs expert Dr. Bruce Burnett; former chief security officer of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Joseph Dunne; and former NYPD Chief of Department Philip Banks III.
"CCCNY will serve as a vital resource for qualifying patients in New York in need of palliative care," said Dr. Good, CEO of CCCNY. "By assembling a world-class team of cultivators, medical experts and researchers, along with New York State's top two highest ranking police officers to retire in 2014, and the former executive vice president and vice chairman of CVS Corporation, we will be able to provide organic pharmaceutical-grade whole-plant extracts, with consistent cannabinoid profiles, at our Compassionate Care Centers throughout the State -- built to function like pharmacies, but equipped with the most state-of-the-art security available.
