Michelle Bodian Joins INCBA for 'In the Weeds in the Empire State: Cannabis Licensing in New York' CLE
May 11, 2022
VS counsel Michelle Bodian will join the International Cannabis Bar Association (INCBA) for a New York-focused CLE on May 19, 2022 at 11 a.m. PT.
On March 31, 2021, New York State legislators passed the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) which, among other things, set forth a comprehensive licensing framework for the cultivation, processing, distribution, sale, and delivery of adult-use cannabis. The MRTA also established the Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) and the Cannabis Control Board (CCB) — the regulatory bodies tasked with overseeing adult-use licensing and sales. In the thirteen months since the MRTA's passage, OCM and CCB created three novel conditional license types that would prioritize existing hemp farmers and certain individuals who have been convicted in the state of a cannabis state crime.
Watch this virtual CLE from the INCBA to get up to speed with the conditional cannabis license types in New York.
