Cannabis Law Firm in Erie County, New York

Kaufman McGowan PLLC is one of the leading corporate cannabis law practices in Erie County, New York and the United States.


In 2021, the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) legalized the recreational use of marijuana for adults over the age of 21 in the state of New York. While many municipalities throughout Erie County have opted out of the sale of cannabis products, this leaves considerable business opportunities for the few that haven’t. Namely, the second-most populated city in New York, Buffalo, is a target area for cannabis businesses, while cultivation and manufacturing also remain legal with proper licensing.

Nonetheless, entering this rapidly growing market calls for legal knowledge. When seeking a trusted cannabis lawyer, Erie County business owners and entrepreneurs turn to Kaufman McGowan PLLC, Corporate & Securities Counsel to the Cannabis Industry™.
