The history of legal medical marijuana in the US began in Syosset, Long Island. Anna T. Boyce, RN, suburban mother of 2 watched as a cancer patient used pot to manage his pain and increase his appetite.

As a student nurse she had visited a cancer ward and smelled something unusual. She mentioned it to her guide who responded “It’s marijuana. We allow it because it eases pain, increases appetite and inspires a positive attitude in the patients.”

Over her years of maturation as a medical professional, it was proved to Ms. Boyce over and over again, that marijuana had desirable properties that prescription drugs could not approach. A devout Catholic from a family that neither smoked or drank, she immediately recognized the power of this very inexpensive, illegal substance.

Anna Recci-Boyce, became the author of proposition 215 that legalized medical marijuana in California. The rest is history.

We completely expect Cannabis to be legal very shortly in NY State.Anna

Long Island is in a unique position to capitalize on a number of booming industries that can be tied to the legalization of Cannabis.

Beginning of course with our fertile farmlands on the East End, surrounded by water—the glorious great blue Atlantic Ocean to the South and the mysterious waters of the Long Island Sound.

Our world class beaches are already famous and a short ride into or from Manhattan (NYC).

We firmly believe that Long Island can become the Amsterdam of the East.
