In March of 2021 New York became the 15th State to legalize recreational cannabis through the passage of the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act. New York City is poised to become the retail epicenter of New York’s cannabis industry with the potential influx of several types of cannabis business, most notably retail dispensaries and on-site consumption sites.
