Cannabis Wire wins NY Innovation Grant

The Made in NY Media Center by IFP, in partnership with Mayor De Blasio’s Office of Media & Entertainment and the New York City Economic Development Corpoation, announced the first recipients of its first Made in NY Entrepreneur Innovation Grants. Yes, that’s a mouthful of organizations, but Cannabis Wire, Magic Grantees from 2014-2015, were one of the nine winners! These grants range between $5,000 and $10,000 and come without strings (“equity- and stake-free funding”).  The site hosts comprehensive and non-partisan reporting on legislation and policies on the issue of marijuana across the country. With this new round of funding Nushin Rashidian from the Cannabis Wire team told us what’s ahead in 2016 – “Look for wider coverage and a more robust team of correspondents and researchers.”

Congratulations! This is a remarkable event!
