Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis LLP is pleased to be affiliated with the recently announced Rutgers Law School Certificate in Cannabis Law and Business program, a six-month course of study that will provide existing and prospective cannabis industry license holders with the foundation required to operate a legally compliant cannabis business in New Jersey.

The program, which launches in January 2023, will back Rutgers’ commitment to supporting underserved communities, along with the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission’s mission in that regard, by offering scholarships to Social Equity and Diversely Owned Business license applicants. Greenbaum is supporting these Social Equity licensees by funding a scholarship to cover the full cost of participation in the program. Additional information about the Certificate in Cannabis Law and Business program is available on the Rutgers Law School website.
