NYSBA Cannabis Law Section Publishes First Update

NYSBA members can join the Cannabis Law Section for only $35 and law student members can join for free.

We would like to formally congratulate what was previously our Committee on Cannabis Law on their transition to becoming an official NYSBA Section! Becoming a Section means New York State Bar Association members can now join and participate in the Section’s work.
As a practicing attorney, if you have interest in the emerging cannabis market and its legal practice, consider joining this Section to:

Further Explore the Practice – Cannabis law affects many other areas of practice, and its legalization impacts local and state law. Section members will be privy to the most up-to-date information regarding these and other topics.


Expand the Section’s Initiatives – Section members will have the opportunity to influence the introduction and improvement of laws in the cannabis field.


Participate In Cannabis-Specific Continuing Legal Education – NYSBA has offered numerous cannabis law programs to date and the creation of this Section allows us to increase our offerings in the future, including our upcoming program on February 8th, Navigating The Legal Pitfalls Of Cannabis Financing. Here’s a sample of recently presented programs that are now available on-demand:
