NY Cannabis Insider: Join virtual event to learn about the emerging marijuana business – syracuse.com
Recreational marijuana has been legal in New York since April 1.
But when it comes to what the new marijuana business landscape will look like, there are still more questions than answers.
NY Cannabis Insider can help. It is hosting a virtual conference and networking event — NY Cannabis Live — to address the many issues related to the growing, processing and selling of cannabis/marijuana.
The event is aimed at anyone interested in entering the marijuana marketplace, including the new recreational industry, plus the expanding medical marijuana category and the growing business in CBD and other cannabis products.
Some estimates put the value of New York’s cannabis business, once it gets fully operational, at up to $4 billion a year, with a potential to support 30,000 to 60,000 jobs.
A panel of industry experts, to be named at a later date, will help participants navigate their way through all things cannabis with roundtable discussions and more. There are also opportunities for the participants to network and link up virtually with others who can share their insights.
The online event is 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 28. Get tickets.
This is the second virtual business conference NY Cannabis Insider has hosted since the marijuana legalization took effect.
Possession of up to three ounces is now legal in the state, but the mechanism for setting up legitimate manufacture and sales has been delayed by the state’s failure, so far, to set up the agency and control board that will set the rules and issue licenses. Some estimates say the marketplace may not be fully operating until late 2022 or beyond.
