6.22.21 Webinar Growing a Cannabis Economy: Lessons from Hamilton, ON

What does New York’s recent legalization of cannabis mean for workplaces, the state’s regulatory framework and the Buffalo Niagara economy? Join BNP in a conversation with our friends in Canada for lessons learned during their pre- and post-legalization periods.
