Cannabis Law Webinar – Fully Baked: A Review of the Newly-Enacted Marihuana Regulation and Taxation Act
Please join us for this informational webinar series. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation legalizing adult-use cannabis, fulfilling a key component of his 2021 State of the State agenda. The bill establishes the Office of Cannabis Management to implement a comprehensive regulatory framework that covers medical, adult-use and cannabinoid hemp. The bill also expands New York State’s existing medical marijuana and cannabinoid hemp programs. The legislation provides licensing for marijuana producers, distributors, retailers, and other actors in the cannabis market, and creates a social and economic equity program to assist individuals disproportionately impacted by cannabis enforcement that want to participate in the industry. What does this all mean for your municipality? Learn more in this timely webinar.
Session Four – Fully Baked: A Review of the Newly-Enacted Marihuana Regulation and Taxation Act
Date: Tuesday, April 13, 2021, 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
**Please remember that under federal law, the possession, use, distribution or sale of non-hemp cannabis and cannabis-based products is illegal despite certain state laws that decriminalize such activity. While federal enforcement policy may defer to a state’s laws and not enforce conflicting federal laws, the fact remains that compliance with state law in no way assures compliance with federal law, and there is a risk that conflicting federal laws may be enforced in the future. No legal advice we give is intended to provide any guidance or assistance in violating federal law.**
