Andrew Schriever, Partner and Co-Chair of the firm’s Litigation Practice, is a co-founder of the New York City Cannabis Industry Association (NYCCIA) and the Hudson Valley Cannabis Industry Association (HVCIA). Andrew serves as Special Advisor of the NYCCIA and serves as President of the HVCIA.
The purpose of the NYCCIA and HVCIA is to create and promote best practices while working in the emerging cannabis industry and coordinate with local communities through education and dialogue. Each Association will help advocate for regulation that allows for a legal, responsible adult use cannabis program, and for the improvement of New York’s medical cannabis, hemp and CBD programs, with the goal of fostering relationships with community leaders, stakeholders, and decision-makers to comprehensively and effectively communicate the needs and priorities of the market while being respectful of legitimate community concerns.
NYCCIA launch event on Thursday, January 16, 2020 in New York City.
“Our goal through the NYCCIA and HVCIA is to offer forums through membership and committees to help unify efforts for a proactive plan to create successful implementation of this emerging market as cannabis legislation unfolds,” said Andrew Schriever, Co-Founder.
