  • Aug 19, 2014 · 7:00 PM

MJBA is back at Social Bar at 795 8th Ave (btwn 48th/49th) for our August 19 meetup.  This is our first meetup since Governor Cuomo signed the historic legislation making medical marijuana legal in New York state, so please plan to attend. Over the coming weeks, NY MJBA will be providing more details about the multitude of opportunities to participate in this exciting new industry.

On Tuesday, August 19, we're pleased to welcome Steve Bloom, the publisher of The former editor of High Times magazine, Steve is also the co-author of Pot Culture and Reefer Movie Madness.  (Steve recently interviewed David Rheins, CEO and Co-Founder of MJBA, on the CelebStoner Radio Show.  If you missed it, please click here to listen.)
