The future of cannabis law and policy in New York City

It's been a long time since my last post, in no small part because it took a few months to put together a forum that I co-moderated on January 28 at the New York City Bar Association on "The Future of Marijuana Law in New York City." The podcast is available through the Bar Association's website. (Click here to go directly to the audio link.)

The panel consisted City Council Members Stephen Levin and Jumaane Williams, Dean of Touro Law Center and Professor of Law Patricia Salkin, and Assistant District Attorney Nitin Savur from the Office of New York County District Attorney Cyrus Vance.

I believe that the event succeeded in opening a discussion on the subject of what the City of New York has done and can do to design its own optimal cannabis policy.
