Recreational Marijuana Use Legalized in NYS

June 08, 2021

On March 31, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law the New York State Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (“MRTA”) which legalized recreational use of marijuana for adults over the age of 21. Although retail sales of marijuana are not expected to begin until 2022, the legalized use of marijuana became effective immediately.

On this episode two attorneys from the Harris Beach Cannabis Industry Team – Karl Sleight and Meaghan Feenan – as well as Morgan Hopkins, a CPA at DeJoy, Knauf and Blood and the director of its Hemp & Cannabis Services, address frequently asked questions that have come up during conversations with organizations throughout the state and beyond.
