WHO WE ARE

CANY is the largest cannabis association in NY – with hundreds of members stretched across the supply chain from seed-to-sale, and in every region of the state. Through our policy and regional committees, we work to engage with the various communities of interest within the NY cannabis economy. Since our founding in 2019, we have helped draft multiple laws and countless regulations to build a cannabis industry that benefits small and midscale NYS businesses first.
