Cannabis Law Firm in Monroe County, New York

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


The Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA) of 2021 legalized the recreational use of marijuana throughout the state of New York. This legal framework also enabled municipalities to opt out of retail sales by prohibiting the establishment of dispensaries within their territories. While only a handful of towns in Monroe County, NY, have approved the sale of cannabis products, Rochester—the county seat and fourth-largest city in the state—is among them and represents a key business opportunity.  

Nonetheless, emerging into the rapidly growing cannabis market calls for careful consideration, especially when it comes to the industry’s legal complexities. To ensure ongoing compliance, businesses and entrepreneurs need a trusted cannabis lawyer. Monroe County has Kaufman McGowan PLLC, Corporate & Securities Counsel to the Cannabis Industry™.
