Cannabis Law Program – Annual Meeting (2020)

Cannabis Law Program – Annual Meeting (2020)

AM20_675x250

2020 is looking to be a pivotal year for cannabis law in New York. Our Canadian and Massachusetts neighbors have moved to full legalization. Federal legislation has legalized hemp and the FDA is promulgating regulations for CBD. In 2019, New York decriminalized possession of marijuana and imposed its own rules for hemp-based CBD. As funds continue to flow into cannabis, often from funds based in New York, how will New York as a judicial, commercial and legislative leader act?

The Committee on Cannabis Law will address these issues with panels addressing:

· Legislative and Regulatory Perspectives

· Best Practices for Structuring Deals and Financing

· Developing Commercial Cannabis Case Law

This program will feature in-house and outside counsel for significant participants in the cannabis industry, and thought leaders and representatives from Vanderbilt Law School, the National Cannabis Industry Association and New York Department of Agriculture and Markets. The keynote speaker will be Axel Bernabe, the Assistant Counsel to NY Governor Cuomo for Health.
