Connections: Understanding cannabis law in NYS
CITY Magazine reporter Gino Fanelli recently paid $65 for a T-shirt at a local CBD store. An eighth of an ounce of marijuana came as a complementary "gift" with the purchase. As Fanelli reports, it's one way retailers are working around state law, which prevents retail sales of the plant. The law does allow adults to transfer or give up to three ounces of marijuana to each other without compensation.
This hour, we examine cannabis law and the future of the recreational market with our guests:
