Joseph Zupnik, Canni Care CEO, 386 Airmont

Joseph Zupnik Has His Hands in the Many Pockets of Healthcare, Medical Marijuana is Apparently No Exception…..

by LostMessiah, March 18, 2016 (spelling corrected for Touro College)

The high and…mighty king of the healthcare and rehabilitation business, Joseph Zupnik, one of many who had entities with offices raided at 386 Route 59 in Airmont, apparently likes the idea of adding medical marijuana to his portfolio of healthcare related businesses. Perhaps instead of sedating the elderly on antipsychotics, he has plans to get them high on Marijuana. Perhaps the endeavor is just plain stimulating…. Likely…. not. The cannabis business in NY is, in our opinion, most certainly going to be very, very profitable in a state that is entertaining the idea of significant limitations on medical marijuana distribution and use applications.

We are not sure whether or not Mr. Zupnik realizes that the “munchies” can be very expensive for those for whom cannabis is helpful. Whether or not CanniCare plans also to be a distributor of Cheese Doodles and Pringles, Jelly Bellies and mini hot dogs, remains to be seen.

And Touro College?…. Well, we can’t make heads or tails of that….

On July 29, 2015, in an article on PR Newswire, entitled: “Touro College Announces Support for CanniCare’s Medical Cannabis License Application” we learn that:

“If CanniCare is selected, Touro would provide the company with research into medical cannabis.

“Our college is supportive of medicinal development and research,” said Alan H. Kadish, president of the Touro College System. “There is still a great deal of research to be conducted on the medical application of cannabis and we are excited by the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way. We will also offer CanniCare advice on the clinical use of the medicine along the way.”

Some of the research – to be funded from CanniCare profits – will be designed to ensure that the benefits of using medical marijuana are fully understood and that the risks are carefully considered.

“The State of New York is already working on a policy for when and how to prescribe medical cannabis, but there are always post-market refinements based on outcomes and protocols, and that’s an element of the research we would conduct,” Dr. Kadish said.

Mr. Zupnik, if you haven’t thought of it yet, it might be worthwhile to purchase a little food mart next to your distribution… or whatever… locations. Another thing to add to your financial empire…

Haredi University Backs Haredi Company’s Bid For Medical Marijuana License

“Our college is supportive of medicinal development and research,” said Alan H. Kadish, president of the Touro College System. “There is still a great deal of research to be conducted on the medical application of cannabis and we are excited by the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way. We will also offer CanniCare advice on the clinical use of the medicine along the way.”   

Touro College is essentially a lower quality haredi or haredi-lite version of Yeshiva University. It is to medical and scientific research what your local junior college is to Harvard, Yale or even SUNY Buffalo.

The potential medical marijuana company, CanniCare, is, FailedMessiah.com was told, haredi-owned.

The fact that Touro does not have much background in doing serious medical or scientific research and what it does have is primarily from its Osteopathic school of medicine should be a red flags for the State of New York – but likely won’t be, because the process of awarding these five licenses is by almost every report corrupt, and the one thing that can be said about New York’s governance in general is that corruption plays an outsized role in it.

Here is the CanniCare press release touting its relationship with Touro:

  1. Oh, dearest LM….. marijuana is different now than it was when an ounce cost $10 and came in a baggie. Not, of course, that I would have any first hand knowledge of that. These days there are different strains of weed. Some do NOT give the munchies. Again, not that I would know from first hand experience.

    oooo, something just made me think of Taco Bell.
