Almost a year after the legalization of recreational marijuana – a significant victory for social justice advocates and cannabis industry enthusiasts – New York State continues to progress toward full implementation of the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act. Although adult-use marijuana is not yet available for retail purchase, the legalization of recreational marijuana for those 21 and older has flung wide the doors to a rapidly expanding market that has the potential to bring in billions of dollars in tax revenue. This incredible opportunity is the result of a collective effort; state and local officials, regulators, investors, legal advisors, and cannabis industry visionaries came together to guarantee that New York State and its residents will reap the benefits – medical, social, and financial – of cannabis. The first dispensaries for adult-use marijuana may not open until later this year, but it’s high time we honor these trailblazers in cannabis. Our Cannabis Industry Power Players list seeks to do just that.
