BLOOMFIELD OUT, MEDMEN IN - Bloomfield Industries, one of the five companies licensed to sell medical marijuana in New York, is being acquired by MedMen, a California-based marijuana management and consulting firm. The change in ownership comes just two days after New York State's medical marijuana program marked its first year, amid cries from executives that the market is not viable and reassurances from the state Department of Health that the program remains on course. Bloomfield had been facing "financial constraints" for at least the last six months, forcing the company to skip payments to some vendors and entertain offers from several investors, including MedMen, which has a $100 million venture capital arm.

MONTE MONEY - Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Monday that Montefiore Health System, which has been expanding into the lower Hudson Valley, would receive $50 million from the state. The money, which Cuomo promised during his State of the State address in New York City, follows Montefiore's moves to acquire or partner with several hospitals just north of its Bronx base, including Our Lady of Mercy, Westchester Square Hospital, Mount Vernon Hospital, New Rochelle Hospital, Nyack Hospital and St. Luke's Cornwall Hospital.

...Cuomo didn't devote much time to health care, although, as expected, he did promise to fight to preserve the Affordable Care Act: "The New York promise continues, because we believe individual health is public health and quality affordable health care is a human right. We will not go back to a place where nearly 3 million New Yorkers are uninsured or Medicaid is decimated and our world class New York health care system is dismantled. We will not allow that to happen in the State of New York."
