Pharmaceutical professions are making the hop to the Cannabis industry and this is a “Q” and “A” session with Chris Diorio, who worked in the pharma industry for 25 years. He is now the director of PharmaCann in New York.
PharmaCann has a cultivation and processing site and four vertically integrated dispensaries in New York, as well two grow sites in Illinois, where the company is headquartered.
Diorio’s path to PharmaCann started simply enough during a dinner with two former colleagues, one who previously worked with Diorio at Pfizer and the other a former retail pharmacist. Both were working at Bloomfield Industries, a PharmaCann competitor in the cannabis industry.
