The New Jersey Cannabis Industry Association and Cooper Levenson, Attorneys at Law produced a seminar, “The Future of Cannabis in New Jersey,” at the New Jersey Law Center, New Brunswick on March 20, 2018.
Discussions included medical expansion, patient access, decriminalization, legalization, minority inclusion, industry and community strategies, municipal benefits, constituent engagement, workable approaches to zoning and land use, and the legal and law enforcement issues likely to face local governments as adult-use cannabis policy is adopted.
“With the support of Governor Murphy and Senate President Sweeney, the legalization of recreational marijuana appears to be not far off. Symposiums like this one are crucial to understanding the business and safety concerns,” said Lloyd D. Levenson, Esq., Chief Executive Officer, Cooper Levenson, Attorneys at Law.
