The online event will feature a panel of VS attorneys, including leaders of the firm’s New York office, who are working on cannabis policy and regulatory matters with policymakers and stakeholders across the tri-state region. It will also feature special guest Michael Huttner, managing director of Young America Capital.


The panel will explore a variety of questions on the minds of regulators, entrepreneurs and existing cannabis businesses, including:

  • Will New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy sign the current adult-use bill on his desk, or is it back to the drawing board for the Legislature?
  • Will this be New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s big year for cannabis legalization, and if so, will the CRTA or MRTA make it to law?
  • Will Connecticut surprise the region by enacting adult-use legalization before New York?
  • How big are these markets and what will they look like?
  • What are the acquisition opportunities, and how can businesses raise capital in this ambiguous environment?
