The Race Down the Hudson [PODCAST]

NJ vs. NY Legalization of Marijuana Adult Use

Check out Legally Grown’s (and Norris McLaughlin’s) first podcast!  In our inaugural episode, “The Race Down the Hudson,” Andrew D. Linden, Co-Chair of our Cannabis Law Practice Group, and a Member of the firm, discusses with Labor & Employment Attorney Keya Denner where New Jersey and New York stand on legalizing adult use marijuana.  Despite promises of a statute legalizing adult use cannabis in New Jersey during 2018, taxes and the formation of the Cannabis Regulatory Committee, among other items, have stalled progress.  Meanwhile, across the river in New York, top politicians have changed course, now embracing legalized adult use marijuana and starting their own push to have a bill enacted this year – perhaps before New Jersey.  Who are you betting on to win the race?
