AGENDA

The Framework for Legalisation

We’ll speak with those who were at the heart of the campaign for change and find out first hand the steps needed to bring this work into reality. New York, and neighboring states also on the cusp of legalization, has made social justice and social equity a focus of legalization. How will New York incorporate these considerations into their legal framework?

A Multi State Approach

How are states such as New York, New Jersey and Conneticut looking to develop a regional and cooperative approach to legalization?

Moats & Drawbridges

The regulatory landscape is in flux - with potential to change verticality. With a panel of CEO's from leading MSO's, we explore the opportunities and challenges facing an industry about to enter the slipstream of formal commerce

The $6 Billion Question

Could New York really be set to outstrip California is the new cannabis capital of the US? And if New York is the new cannabis capital of the US, how will New York-based cannabis businesses leverage this now-leading sector position?

Cannabis in Vogue

New York has long been a fashion and creativity mecca. How might this new kid on the block pervade the high society of the city in the future?

When Weed Comes to Wall Street

While legalization of cannabis is new to New York, capital markets are not. However, the federal illegality of cannabis has limited the NYSE and NASDAQ's ability to list US-based cannabis companies. With federal banking legislation on the horizon and federal legalization as a topic, what would it mean for the sector - including US-based companies - to have access to these exchanges?

Rolling Out: Implementing New Legislation

Where will dispensaries be located? What power does the local government have to decide where and how shops get located? What types of products will be on shelves and when? How will medical patients be considered in the new regulatory framework?
