Andrew Glassman Commends Governors on Aligning Views on Cannabis Legislation

The Marijuana Times

Andrew C. Glassman, chair of the firm's Business and Finance practice and Cannabis industry group, was quoted in The Marijuana Times' article, "What the Recent Cannabis Summit of Northeastern US Governors Could Mean for Cannabis Legislation" regarding the agreement by state leaders on a set of core principles relating to cannabis. 

The governors of Connecticut, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, in addition to representatives from Colorado and Massachusetts, agreed to key parameters around cannabis regulation, social equity, taxes and other measures.   Glassman, who represents several cannabis businesses in Connecticut, commended the efforts made by the governors thus far.  "As we have already seen with Massachusetts...consumers in this region will readily cross state lines to purchase cannabis products despite laws prohibiting them from doing so.  This means that some level of coordinated regulations makes great sense."
