WeedWeek hasn’t checked the record books, but Sacramento’s inaugural cannabis czar has traded in public officialdom for executive employment.

Joe Devlin oversaw Sacramento’s cannabis regulations for two years. Then, in a manuever executed by thousands thousands of non-pot officials before him, took his talents to the industry he helped regulate.

  • Devlin was named ikanik Farms’ senior vice president of new market development earlier this month. He says he had been “burned out” for some time and that he resigned one day before the city dismissed him.
  • Sacramento’s code allows city employees to leave their positions, then move on to work in the same industry. For one year Devlin will not be allowed to go before the City Council or represent ikanic on the issues that he worked on.
