RocGrowth 2021-02-18: Marijuana Legalization: Opportunities and Challenges

February 18, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Zach Sarkis, NY HempLab, and Jason Klimek, Esq., Boylan Code LLP will discuss the likely legalization of marijuana in NYS this spring.

RocGrowth Community

Please join us to hear Zach Sarkis, founder of NY HempLab, and Jason Klimek, Esq., Chair of the Cannabis Practice at Boylan Code LLP, to discuss the likely legalization of marijuana in New York State this spring.

The legislation is currently being crafted and negotiated by the governor and legislature.  This is a critical time for New Yorkers to help shape the laws and regulations that will govern commercialization.  Our conversation with two experts on this issue will shed light on the legislative process and what it might mean for our region.

RocGrowth’s mission is about building community for our region’s great innovators and entrepreneurs.  For seven years, we have featured our leading entrepreneurs in a series of open interviews, including audience participation.

RocGrowth has adjusted to the restrictions placed on social interaction by adopting Zoom in lieu of our typical convocation.  We will moderate a 30 minute interview, followed by Q&A using the chat feature.


Stay healthy…and remain six feet apart.

Oh, please wear a mask, too.
