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 in Williamsburg to identify opportunities at a
critical time for the forecasted $7.3bn industry.
New York, NY — [20 Sep 2023] — 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 2022, 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?

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
