New York Canna Business Lawyer / Medical Marijuana Lawyer
The Law Offices of Craig Delsack, LLC provides extensive experience as business lawyers advising on a vast array of business and corporate matters, including those ancillary businesses involving cannabis, hemp, CBD and medical marijuana, including those governed by New York’s “compassionate care act” (NYS Public Health Law, Article 33 (Controlled Substances), Title 5-A (Use of Marijuana)). On January 15, 2019 Governor Cuomo proposed his all encompassing medical marijuana law, adult-use cannabis law, and commercial cannabis law as a bill entitled, the “Cannabis Regulation and Taxation Act” (the “CRTA”). Unfortunately that bill was not passed by the legislature that year, and has been re-introduced as part of the governor’s budget in 2020 and 2021. Meanwhile, the NY Assembly has proposed its own bill over the years, the most recent on January 6, 20201, the “Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act” (S.854) (the”MRTA”). Please read the blog for current articles and updates.
Although NY has not yet passed new cannabis laws, some of our clients believe it makes sense to start some planning before the laws take effect. Launching and distributing products in an FDA-regulated space is particularly challenging. Achieving commercial success in the cannabis arena requires thorough planning around zoning and land-use, product design, production, marketing, sales, channel distribution, customer support, and other functions critical to the business.
Our clients interested in operating in NY under the compassionate care act and the CRTA or MRTA (as the case may be) include growers, cultivators, processors, cooperatives, distributors, retail dispensaries, on-site (on-premises) consumption businesses and ancillary businesses, and other cannapreneurs. As cannabusiness lawyers, we advise clients in the areas of:
- Licensing and registration
- Business formation and business licensing
- Corporate and commercial transactions, mergers, acquisitions, and financing deals
- Real estate matters
- Employment matters
- Branding and intellectual property protection
- IP licensing agreements
- Vendor and ancillary business contracts
- Privacy matters
among other matters.
