William J. Caruso, Partner and Chair of Archer’s Cannabis Practice group, will serve as Moderator for the Mayors Roundtable, “Marijuana: Looking Ahead & Looking Back” at the New Jersey State League of Municipalities Annual Conference on Wednesday, November 20 in Atlantic City, NJ.
The effort to legalize the adult recreational use of cannabis stalled earlier this year. We may see the effort for legalization return in a few weeks in the Lame Duck or we may see a voter referendum next year. In the meanwhile, legislation was approved expending the State’s medical marijuana program. This session will provide an overview of the new law, what municipalities need to know and local issues to be addressed. From there, Part 2 will feature a panel of mayors from New Jersey and some of our neighboring states to discuss lessons learned and what New Jersey’s municipalities need to know. This course is part of the Local Government Leadership Program.
