Updates on the rollout of legal cannabis in New York
New York is inching closer to a legal recreational market for cannabis. Last week, the state's Office of Cannabis Management launched an application portal for what are known as Conditional Adult-Use Recreational Dispensary (CAURD) licenses. Those applications will determine who in New York will be first to sell pot legally.
