On Thursday, May 20, 2021, Keane & Beane, P.C. will present its 2021 Spring Webinar Series, Part III: “New York Adult Use Marijuana: What You Need to Know”. Attorneys Eric L. Gordon and Drew Victoria Gamils will provide an overview of the New York State Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (“MRTA”), which legalizes adult-use cannabis in New York State. The legalization of adult-use cannabis will have a direct impact upon municipalities and residents and requires municipalities to determine whether to allow the retail sale of cannabis in their community. This presentation will highlight key questions and concerns pertaining to the MRTA and what rights local municipalities have with respect to the control and regulation of adult-use cannabis.
Topics will include:
- An Overview of the MRTA
- The Licensing System for Recreational Marijuana Sales
- Municipal Opt-Out Authorization
- Should A Municipality Decide To Opt-Out
- Reasonable Local Restrictions on Retail Dispensaries and On-Site Consumption Sites
- Local Regulations Permitted on Personal Cultivation
- Non-smoking areas
- The Taxation System
The Zoom webinar on May 20th will begin at 12:00 p.m. and end at 1:30 p.m. and will include a question and answer segment. Registration is required by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. An access code will be sent to registrants the morning of the program.
