  • Description

    The legalization of cannabis throughout the US is no longer the shocking news it once was, and yet it is still not a sure thing. This CLE course will focus on the movement towards legalization in New York which continued through to the end of the 2018-2019 legislative session and yet ended in the failure of the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act. The course will explore the many conflicts regarding the language proposed as well as the regulatory models for the cannabis market. The role of local government as well as its relationship to New York State, will also be presented.
