On Tuesday, June 17 at 7:00 pm, please join us for a special presentation by Craig Silver, the Executive Director of the Garden State Dispensary in New Jersey. Craig Silver's group also collectively owns and operates eight dispensaries in Colorado.
The New York State General Assembly's House of Representatives passed medical marijuana legislation on May 27 as it has done five times in the past seven years. In the next two weeks, we are hopeful that the NY Senate will also pass the bill which would then go to Governor Cuomo to sign into law. With medical marijuana on the verge of becoming legal in New York, Craig Silver will be making a powerpoint presentation detailing the challenges that he faced in New Jersey in opening one of the state's first dispensaries, as well as pointing out the pitfalls to avoid.
Following Craig Silver's presentation, both MarijuanaDoctors.com and the NY Marijuana Business Association will be making presentations.
With all the shennanigans that have been taking place the past week in Governor Cuomo's office, we've added an update on the status of the New York State General Assembly's effort to pass the CCA legislation -- and how you can help.
Finally, after our formal presentations, this will become an informal networking event with an open bar. Lair will host us for as long as you'd like to stay with plenty of food and drinks available!
