Cannasigliere launched the New York Adult-Use Municipal Tracking Map in April 2021 as a free service to one and all. Averaging over 10,000 views a month, the tracking map is the first of its kind in New York and the most up-to-date resource for keeping tabs on the opt-in/out standings of cities, towns, and villages across the state. The map consists of hundreds of hours of work and includes thousands of exerts from heavily scrutinized articles, municipal agendas, Department of State filings, and meeting minutes from across the state, as well as direct contributions from dozens of NY's mayors, town supervisors, journalists, and local activists.
We are extremely proud of this grassroots effort that went into getting the word out about public hearings between legalization and the opt-out deadline and are happy to have played a small role in shining a light on these statewide decision-making processes.

“We have found Cannasigliere to be among the most knowledgeable, supportive, and hardworking consulting firms that we have ever had the privilege to work with.

We are incredibly fortunate to have engaged Cannasigliere. We would recommend them highly to anyone wishing to learn and enter the cannabis industry.”
"Cannasigliere reviewed our existing curriculum, met with our instructors, and offered valuable suggestions for our programs and curriculum moving forward. They also assisted us in identifying options for renovating a science lab on campus to be used in our hydroponics courses. They are very responsive and proactive in their work, and we are very lucky to have found a company with such passion for the industry, as well as their knowledge and expertise."
"Cannasigliere came highly recommended and we have been working with them for over 6 months and found them so valuable that our college renewed the contract for another 6 months. Cannasigliere is a tremendous asset or resource for any organization, especially to SUNY Adirondack. They are thoughtful, efficient and well-connected and they go above and beyond to deliver for their clients. Their interests and expertise are vast in the cannabis industry and if they don't have the information--they are happy to provide expert sources and make connections on your behalf. They have been instrumental in getting our program up and running and they have provided useful tools and resources for course development, conference planning, product sourcing, legal, industry trends and many more. We are so pleased to have Cannasigliere working with us on this project and highly recommend them to others in the industry. Their help and guidance have been invaluable and we look forward to continuing our partnership in the future."

Their work ethic and can-do attitude have helped them develop a reputation as a well-liked industry expert with a lot of connections. Cannasigliere is approachable and professional, always engaged in the task at hand. They follow up on ideas and complete tasks in a timely manner.

They have become a major asset to our program; engaging their services to help guide us was one of the best decisions we’ve made in a long time!"
NY Cannabis Insider is hosting its first in-person conference in Albany on May 20th. The event will feature expert panels, networking, a vendor fair and more. Tickets are available now.
Though New York legalized adult-use marijuana last year, interpreting some of the state regulations — both enacted and proposed — can be daunting.
NY Cannabis Insider is here to help, and today we’ll begin answering the frequently asked questions we overhear in the cannabis space.
Some questions will be answered by industry experts, others by our journalists, and a few from the Office of Cannabis Management — which recently debuted its “Cannabis Conversations”. . .
The legalization of recreational marijuana has arrived in New York State. The oversight commission and Office of Cannabis Management opened in Albany in October. The tax rates and initial revenue recipients have been determined and once OCM establishes industry regulations — it expects to have those regulations done by the end of March — the long-awaited business of selling recreational marijuana will begin in New York State.
Municipalities had until the end of 2021 to specifically opt out of allowing dispensaries and consumption sites. If they don’t opt in or out, they’re in. Opt-in and opt-out clarification an be found at . . .
