New York state seemed poised to legalize marijuana in 2020 – but those efforts, like so many others, were thwarted by COVID-19. However, we can expect this unfinished business to remain on the radar – with legalization seen as a way of creating jobs, raising tax revenue, and lowering incarceration rates.

In this episode attorneys Meaghan Feenan and Taylor Ventre – both members of the Harris Beach Cannabis Industry Team – discuss what could be around the corner in this burgeoning industry, particularly as it pertains to municipalities, special improvement districts, and Industrial Development Agencies.

They touch on a brief history of cannabis in New York state, key considerations for municipalities as the legalization landscape changes, the questions municipalities are wrestling with and thoughts on when we may see movement in legalization.

Meaghan also recently published a legal alert on New York state extending its hemp pilot program, which you can read for more information. See less -
