This week on Beer Sessions, Jimmy puts down the beer to light up the conversation about marijuana with Max Bookman, partner at Pesetsky & Bookman, and Andrew Mutty, co-owner of Beantown Greentown.
Max covers what's been holding up the establishment of dispensaries in New York City, and what you need to know if you’re looking to open your own dispensary. Andrew points out some lessons from Massachusetts that can help guide the way for New York. The gang discusses how new laws are striving to empower marginalized groups to lead the way in the legal distribution of weed, and how the requirements of those laws might play out in practice. They touch on why your local dispensary feels so different from your local bar, and how a change in federal law might dramatically change the marijuana industry, from allowing cross-state distribution to empowering veterans with more medicinal alternatives. Swap your beer for a joint this week and give it a listen!
