Our goal at New York Cannabis Insider is to provide valuable and timely information for the thousands of professionals entering the state’s nascent cannabis marketplace, and connect them to each other through engaging and thought-provoking live and virtual events.

As a born-and-bred New Yorker, it is beyond exciting to launch this state’s first publication dedicated to detailed reporting, smart analyses, and expert insight into such a transformative industry — one that has the potential to address decades of systemic oppression and failed policies that have harmed a disproportionate number of racial and ethnic minority communities.

Subscribers will be the first notified about important news affecting the market and should expect to find in each issue stories and discussions that enlighten, provoke conversation, and amplify underrepresented and underserved voices.

They can also expect New York Cannabis Insider to scrutinize powerful interests, hold politicians accountable and monitor the use of taxpayer funds, while always being receptive to reader feedback, suggestions, criticism, and story tips.

We’re happy to have you with us on this journey.
