New adult-use regulations in New York are set to bring a fresh wave of capital into the cannabis market. Investors and operators will attend Business of Cannabis: New York to identify opportunities at a critical time for the forecasted $7.2bn industry.

With federal regulations looking likely to relax and markets beginning to gain traction again, the cannabis industry seems to be entering a unique phase of growth across North America. In New York, the adult-use cannabis market roll out has faced unique and arduous hurdles since legalization, with a court injunction still preventing many CAURD dispensaries from progressing with their plans.

Despite that, according to Prohibition Partners’ Global Cannabis Report, the New York cannabis market is still set to achieve impressive year-on-year growth and be worth a staggering US$7.2 billion by 2026.

With full adult-use retail finally opening up in the state, is now the moment for the market to fulfill its promise as the new global ‘Capital of Cannabis’ and, if so, how can equity and its
much vaunted CAURD scheme remain at the forefront of its policies?

“How can CAURD operators stand out with ROs now entering the market? Independents need to move faster to compete with ROs entering the adult-use markets soon.” – Dai Truong, Managing Director, Arlington Capital Advisors (speaker)

“In spite of the hurdles constantly thrown in front of us, we will continue to pursue our dream of opening our dispensaries and are doing everything we can to make it a reality for us and the other CAURD licensees.” – Vladimir Bautista, CEO & Co-Founder, The Happy Munkey (speaker)
