Get technology and security guidance for your initial application and subsequent documentation requirements, including security floorplans and point of sale/seed to sale/inventory tracking software selection. It's never too early to start thinking about these technical aspects of your business as it's an important part of operations and compliance. Poor technology and security selections can cause costly disruptions and are expensive to redesign and replace.

The New York cannabis licensing process is notoriously complicated and confusing. We've been involved in the successful rollouts in the state before and can provide technical guidance on technology and security every step of the way - including software selection, hardware procurement, and security requirements. We can also refer you to preferred vendors and consultants that can assist you with other aspects of your launch, including HR, accounting, recruiting, and more.

Our Clients Love Us

“Your company and service…I deem essential. I look forward to working on the next stores with you. Thanks for all your help.”

Rhonda Reid


The Nug Co

“From the start Munir & Shankar were awesome, they were totally on top of communication, had an answer for everything I asked, and knew exactly what my shop needed. As for Greg, great communication, and he did a super clean job wiring up the rack (not to mention all of the other hardware). These three made the whole process smooth and stress free. Congratulations on having such a killer team!”

The history of the legal cannabis industry in New York State is marked by significant shifts in public opinion, legislative changes, and evolving regulations. Here’s a general overview of the key milestones in the development of the legal cannabis industry in the state:

  1. Early Prohibition and Medical Cannabis (1930s-2014): Like much of the United States, New York initially enacted strict cannabis prohibition laws in the 1930s. However, in 2014, the Compassionate Care Act was signed into law, legalizing medical cannabis for qualified patients with certain medical conditions.

  2. Medical Cannabis Implementation (2016-2017): After the passage of the Compassionate Care Act, the state began the process of implementing the medical cannabis program. Licensed organizations were authorized to cultivate, manufacture, and distribute medical cannabis to registered patients.

  3. Decriminalization and Shift in Policy (2019): In 2019, New York State decriminalized the possession of small amounts of cannabis. This change reduced penalties for possession and aimed to address racial disparities in cannabis-related arrests.

  4. Adult-Use Cannabis Legalization (2021): In 2021, the state took a significant step by legalizing adult-use recreational cannabis. The Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) was signed into law, allowing adults aged 21 and older to possess, purchase, and consume cannabis for recreational use. The MRTA also expunged certain past cannabis-related convictions and established regulations for cultivation, distribution, and retail sales.

  5. Cannabis Regulatory Body Formation: Following legalization, the Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) was established to oversee the adult-use, medical, and cannabinoid hemp programs. The OCM is responsible for licensing, regulation, and enforcement within the cannabis industry.

  6. Social Equity and Licensing: The MRTA places a strong emphasis on social equity, aiming to rectify the disproportionate impact of cannabis prohibition on marginalized communities. The law includes provisions for promoting diversity and providing economic opportunities for those affected by past cannabis policies.

  7. Cannabis Sales and Implementation (Ongoing): While the legalization of adult-use cannabis is a landmark step, the full implementation of the legal industry, including the launch of retail sales, is an ongoing process. Regulations for licensing, taxation, and retail operations are being developed and refined.

  8. Evolving Regulations: As the industry continues to develop, New York State will likely see adjustments to regulations, licensing procedures, and taxation frameworks. These changes will shape the industry’s growth, consumer access, and economic impact.
