Course

This program is a discussion of the implementation of the NYS Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA), which is both social equity and employment legislation and has as its goal repairing the damage caused by criminalization of cannabis and mass incarceration to individuals and communities. This far-reaching legislation prioritizes diversity and equity in the granting of licenses, quality jobs, and expungement of cannabis criminal records to increase employment opportunities for people involved in the criminal legal system. It will focus on the forthcoming MRTA regulations, workforce development issues, and how prospective licensees and current employers in the medical cannabis industry see the development of this emerging industry in NYS.
