NJ medical marijuana center official faces ouster
Kenneth Cayre, a wealthy Monmouth County entrepreneur, who was all set to become an important part of one of the state’s new non-profit medical marijuana centers, was removed from the Compassionate Care Centers of America Foundation because of his involvement with con man Solomon Dwek.
On Monday, Michael Weisser, one of the center’s directors, and Cayre’s neighbor had denied knowing about Dwek.
On Wednesday, however, Weisser ousted Cayre from the Center. “ Mr Cayre has been terminated from our Advisory Board and has no position or relationship of any kind with Compassionate Care Centers of America Foundation, Inc," Weisser was quoted as saying.
Cayre refused to comment, but in a sworn statement for the bankruptcy court, Cayre has denied any association with Dwek, and has claimed, he has not done anything wrong.
Cayre is Solomon's Uncle, who is married to his wife's sister's daughter. Cayre shared the spoils of elaborate Ponzi schemes, stated
Governor Christie issues comment
It was Governor Christie, who as U.S Attorney, had launched the corruption investigation that had led to the sting involving Dwek.
“Let’s be absolutely clear. If an applicant is inappropriate or otherwise unfit to run one of these alternative treatment centers, that applicant will be denied a license.
The Governor has had serious concerns about implementation of the program, and those concerns remain during the selection and licensing process," said Michael Drewniak, Christie’s spokesman.
