Two members of our Cannabis Industry Team — partner Karl Sleight and attorney Meaghan Feenan — have been helping reporters across New York State gain familiarity with some of the specifics in the sweeping legislation that legalized the adult recreational use of marijuana in the state. Karl and Meaghan have been quoted in several news articles on the issue over the past week:
- Meaghan was quoted in the Rochester Business Journal in the issue published April 2 and the Daily Record several days prior, highlighting opportunities available under the legalization law for businesses in Rochester and around the state.;
- Karl was also interviewed for an Albany Business Review article that appeared April 5 in which he encouraged businesses interested in cannabis not to wait for the state to finalize regulations before getting involved.
Separately, partner Dan Moore and attorney Taylor Ventre of our Labor and Employment team have taken a look in a legal alert at some of the immediate issues facing employers under the law. Read that assessment here.
