When Cindy Wolff first learned of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposal to legalize and tax recreational marijuana for adults the executive director of Woodmere-based Tempo Group was taken aback.

“It’s quite disappointing honestly, not because I don’t see the financial potential and the bigger picture how the state could benefit from legalization, but there is a disturbing lack of prevention and concern for the children,” said Wolff, who oversees an organization that offers drug and alcohol abuse addiction programs for youths, teens, adults and families.
