New York Passed an Adult-Use Cannabis Law - Now What?


Created on June 01, 2021





Almost one hundred years of cannabis prohibition in New York State ended in March 2021 with the passage of the Marihuana Regulation and Taxation Act. The new law makes changes to multiple parts of the New York Code and will allow a highly disruptive market for goods and services to compete legally with other sectors of the New York economy. However, the signature of the bill into law is just the very beginning of a new reality - a reality known as implementation. 

Successful implementation of the new law will require both an understanding of the mechanics of the law and an understanding of the political context of cannabis legalization and the policy goals that drove the legalization effort. 

This program will benefit any attorneys seeking to learn more about the new MRTA legislation. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the policy issues that shaped the MRTA

  2. Identify the elements of the legislation and the changes to the New York Code it effects

  3. Analyze the timeline for implementation of the new law and identify possible challenges that may arise
