David Tulley — who owned cannabis shops in Wayne, Monroe, Seneca, Cayuga and Oswego counties under the names "I'm Stuck" and "Weed Warehouse" — sold cannabis illegally and to underage customers, ignoring the state's requests to stop operating, according to Attorney General Letitia James.

The state shut down seven of Tulley's shops last summer — in Auburn, Aurelius, Lyons, Ontario, Macedon, Pulaski and Williamson.

Tulley's fine includes $7 million for illegal profits and $8.2 million in penalties for operating without a license and ignoring notices from the state Office of Cannabis Management.

“These illegal and unlicensed stores are budding up throughout the state and are hurting our communities," James said in a statement. "Today, David Tulley is paying the $15 million price for his repeated illegal activity and will be permanently banned from the cannabis industry in New York. This punishment should serve as a clear warning for all unlicensed cannabis stores in the state: we will enforce the law and shut down your operations.”

In previous interviews with 13WHAM, Tulley denied selling cannabis. Instead, he claimed I'm Stuck was a marketing and consulting firm that gifted cannabis samples.

Investigators said their undercover surveillance found underage customers buying cannabis. Tulley denied the allegation.
