Weed Expo Coming To NYC This Weekend

October 10, 2014 | Rhett Jones

If you’re interested in being part of the legitimate weed industry, the International Cannabis Association Expo will be coming to Times Square tomorrow, ahead of the 2016 roll out of limited medical weed in New York state. Organizers hope to give essential information to those who want to get into the business.

The expo was held in Las Vegas last year. The ICA says that there will be accountants and lawyers on hand to answer any burning questions. The tide has been turning all around the country regarding the idea of full legalization with Colorado and Washington state both trying experimental programs. In each case, prospective retailers had a much better chance of approval if they were on the ground floor as a grower or dispensary for medical weed first. In the state of Colorado, it’s a requirement that a percentage of your business be dedicated to medical use.
