Aleece Burgio Published in Bloomberg Law

Aleece Burgio, Cannabis Team leader, had her “New York Cannabis Law Prioritizes Social, Economic Equity” article published in Bloomberg Law. The article highlights key elements of the social equity program established by the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA), the legislation that legalizes adult-use cannabis in New York State, that set it apart from other states’ cannabis legislation.  

“New York is the 15th state to legalize cannabis for recreational adult use and the fourth to do so via passage of a statute by the legislature. The resulting MRTA will set the standard for all incoming adult-use cannabis states to prioritize social and economic incentives. New York’s social equity program, community reinvestment fund, and expungement will create a genuine impact on individuals who have been harmed by prohibition for years to come.”
