This event is aimed at assisting individuals in communities that have been affected by cannabis prohibition. We will offer criminal justice and cannabis business assistance as well as resources to help people looking to get involved in the industry.
With the passing of the MRTA bill to legalize adult-use cannabis, New Yorkers have many opportunities to participate in the cannabis industry. The MRTA is a great start and initial blueprint for the legalized cannabis industry. However, there is a pressing need to adequately disseminate information about the different aspects of the New York Cannabis Law and how it affects New Yorkers.
