New York Cannabis: A Maturing Market About to Bloom




August 4, 2022 2:30PM–3:30PM

New York has wasted no time in seeking to fulfill the mandate of the Marihuana Regulation and Tax Act (“MRTA”), issuing more than 200 conditional cultivation licenses in the span of approximately three and a half months, with more licenses in the form of conditional processing and conditional adult-use retail expected to be issued throughout the remainder of 2022. But what has New York’s unique approach to licensing looked like to this point, and what lessons can be learned and/or tea leaves gleaned in advance of licensing rounds to come?

Please join Foley Hoag professionals Michael C. McQueeny, Cecilia Oyediran, and Jesse Alderman to discuss the fast-moving developments in New York cannabis, and concrete steps that licensees can take right now to prepare their applications.
