What does New York State’s recent legalization of cannabis and the state’s regulatory framework mean for the Buffalo Niagara economy?
Are regional companies ready to be a part of a legalized cannabis industry with a billion-dollar potential?
These are just two of the many questions that need answers before potential cannabis manufacturers, retailers, and ancillary businesses find their roles in the new cannabis economy.
As New York State continues to advance its regulatory framework for the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA), which was signed into law earlier this year, the Buffalo Niagara Partnership is focused on providing current information to help regional businesses take full advantage of this economic opportunity.
The BNP is specifically focused on the most effective ways for interested companies to communicate with the recently formed New York State Cannabis Control Board and Office of Cannabis Management, the expected process for local approvals related to the sale of cannabis products, and the best ways to navigate open access to banking for in relation to the sale on cannabis.
The BNP is hosting the Next Steps: Legalized Cannabis in New York State Webisode, sponsored by Harris Beach, PLLC, to assist companies to create proactive business plans and investment strategies as the state announces more regulatory information.
Harris Beach represents the nation’s leading cannabis companies, including large multi-state operators, start-ups, growers, and non-plant-touching businesses, on a range of issues. As one of the first law firms to offer a comprehensive portfolio of legal services to cannabis clients in New York state, Harris Beach has built a collaborative Cannabis Industry Team integrating decades of knowledge and thought leadership from multiple areas of law, including regulatory, real estate, land use, and zoning, labor and employment, intellectual property, corporate matters, economic development and public finance and more.
