Redefining NYC's
Cannabis Market

Our Mission

NYC must have a forum in the marketplace of ideas to secure a successful legalized adult use cannabis program. This requires participation and input from the different stakeholders in NYC to comprehensively and effectively communicate the needs and priorities of the market to all levels of government. The more an industry can regulate itself, the less it needs to be regulated by others.

NYC Cannabis Industry Association will:

  • Formulate rules to maximize the autonomy of the participants in New York City’s cannabis economy;
  • Prioritize public health and safety
  • Optimize the benefits that the people of the City receive from operation of the City’s cannabis market.

Why Does New York City Need a Cannabis Industry Association?

New York City is the largest metropolitan area in the United States, the epicenter of world finance.  It is culturally diverse with nearly every nationality, race, religion, and background represented in its venerated education programs, unparalleled art collections and venues, and media outlets.

It is also the largest cannabis consumer market in the world.

Legalization in New York State fast approaches its event horizon. Yet, New York City is completely unprepared because there has been no attempt to incorporate the concerns of the metropolitan business community nor the City’s government.That needs to change and the NYCCIA seeks to change that!! Through its membership, its committees, its interdisciplinary dialogue, and its unifying efforts and voice, those concerns will be addressed at the City, State, and National levels. New York City will be at the forefront of the cannabis related commerce and NYCCIA will be leading the way.
