Now that New York has legalized recreational marijuana use, some are thinking of getting into the cannabis industry.

Assemblymember Crystal Peoples-Stokes hosted a virtual panel of experts for local entrepreneurs looking for opportunities in this growing market.

This conversation was the fourth in a series led by Peoples-Stokes, who stressed that legalizing cannabis was intended to promote social and economic equity.

Projections released by New York state estimate that the Cannabis Regulation and Taxation Act will create up to 60,000 jobs.
