Cannabis Law Webinar: The Cannabis Regulation and Taxation Act, Session Three – The Burn Zone: The Zoning and Land Use Implications of the CRTA
Please join us for this informational webinar series. The debate over legalizing marijuana for adult, recreational use in New York has been brewing for the last two years, but disagreements on the issue coupled with a global pandemic have kept it out of reach for lawmakers. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo came out with a proposal to legalize cannabis last year, called the Cannabis Regulation and Taxation Act, will 2021 be the year it is passed? And what does the legislation mean for your municipality?

**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.**
