Potential Impact of the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA)

Posted May 14, 2021 In News


On March 31, 2021, Governor Cuomo signed into law the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (MRTA). This new law has a number of implications on local land uses and it will provide a new tax revenue stream to local governments if retail dispensaries or on-site consumption businesses are located within your municipality. The MRTA is extensively regulated by the State including areas that are normally under local land use regulations. NPV has prepared this white paper to assist municipalities in evaluating the potential impact of the MRTA on local land use and planning issues to consider, which can be accessed from the link below:
