Minnesota’s first cannabis regulator has resigned after allegations she sold illegal products through her company.
Erin DuPree resigned as head of the Office of Cannabis Management on Friday after allegations she sold illegal products in Minnesota through her company Loonacy Cannabis Co., according to FOX 9.
She was appointed to the position by Democrat Gov. Tim Walz on Thursday.
“This evening I sent a letter to the Governor that I will not be going forward as the Director of the Office of Cannabis Management,” DuPree wrote in a letter to local media outlets on Friday.
“This is an industry I am passionate about, and care deeply for; my skills, experience and expertise made me the right person for this job at this moment. I have never knowingly sold any noncompliant product, and when I became aware of them I removed the products from inventory. Conducting lawful business has been an objective of my business career. However, it has become clear that I have become a distraction that would stand in the way of the important work that needs to be done,” she added.
