(Phil) Murphy, we’ve seen a new rejuvenation and renewed interest in the industry in getting medical cannabis to patients that need it," said Korff, an attorney whose company is building a cultivation facility in Ohio. "The political winds indicated to us the timing is right for us to take a serious look at the state."
