Dear NYC cannabis community:

Due to the serious challenges that the coronavirus poses to the health, safety and economy of New York, the NYCannabis Parade & Rally will not take place this year in the same way that it has for the past four and a half decades.

We’re exploring options for a virtual event. Stay tuned to our website and follow and like us on social media for more information about the event and New York legalization news.
