The Cannabis Control Commission meets Monday absent its chairwoman after she was suddenly suspended from her job last week.
On Thursday, Treasury Secretary Deb Goldberg removed pot boss Shannon O’Brien from her post just a year after the former gubernatorial candidate took the job steering marijuana policy for the state. The suspension, with pay, was made public the next day.
O’Brien, who previously won election as State Treasurer, was appointed to lead the five member commission by Goldberg last August. The chairwoman is paid $181,722 per year for her work.
