Cannabis Law Conference 2023

Cannabis Law Conference 2023 (OnDemand)
Originally held on Monday, July 17, 2023 | 9:00 am - 4:45 pm


2023 will be a pivotal year for cannabis law in New York. Now, as a legal product, New York attorneys must become familiar with the regulation, distribution and sale of cannabis to ensure safety, especially given the addictive qualities, propensity to impair perception, judgment and other potential health effects. With recreational marijuana still illegal under federal law, as well as in many states, how will New York as a judicial, commercial and legislative leader act? This program will feature a broad range of perspectives on the evolving regulatory and ethical issues arising out of legal recreational marijuana and provide an overview of how legalized marijuana affects and intersects practice areas such as health; labor and employment; banking; tax; compliance; real property, and of course, well-being. As leaders in their respective practice areas, speakers will explore these wide range of issues and more!
