Union Representatives Matte Kane and Hugh Giordano were together named #52 on behalf of UFCW Local 152 on The Insider 100: Cannabis Power List, described as a list of the 100 most politically influential voices in the cannabis debate in the state of New Jersey.
According to Insider NJ, placement came down to “longevity and overall effect on New Jersey’s culture.” Some on the list changed laws, while others changed minds. Many on the list did both.
