Minnesota Medical Marijuana Company MinnMed Prepares to Start New York Operations

Minnesota Medical Solutions is a company with a bland name, but in a rather provocative business: Providing the terminally ill with medical marijuana.

The company is one of five approved for licenses to bring the medical marijuana business to New York. In Minnesota, CEO Kyle Kingsley employs 39 people, making his business a small one. And he doesn’t expect New York’s medical marijuana economy to be an especially large one.
