Cannabis Marketing Association is hosting a panel discussion examining how to pass a comprehensive adult-use bill through effective advocacy New York has been taking steps towards adult-use legalization, but with the last attempt failing to pass during the 2019 legislative season, it is time to look deeper into what happened and why. Hear from government officials, industry representatives, and legal experts about what it will take for comprehensive cannabis reform to happen in New York in 2020 that benefits patients, adult-use consumers, and minority communities impacted by the drug war.

Following the event there will be a cash-bar mixer at the 230 Fifth Ave Rooftop bar at 8:30 pm. During our hour-long expertly moderated panel we will discuss: * What happened with the failed adult-use bill in New York * How the industry can advocate and interact with government officials effectively * What’s important in the political and cultural agenda for a successful adult-use bill to be passed
