New York’s Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) has postponed its meeting to review “adult-use home cultivation” regulations. Originally set for Wednesday, the Cannabis Control Board delayed the meeting to focus on finalizing adult-use license applications. This postponement highlights the board’s commitment to addressing the significant backlog of applications, a priority for launching New York’s cannabis market in 2024.

The proposed regulations under consideration would allow New Yorkers to grow cannabis at home for personal use. The rules, if approved, will undergo a 60-day public comment period, possibly followed by another review phase, with implementation taking up to a year. The regulations suggest limits on the number of mature and immature plants per person and residence, along with safety and visibility guidelines.

OCM’s statement emphasizes their dedication to processing the backlog of applications, delayed due to legal challenges. The board also plans to revisit discussions on adult-use licenses and other key agenda items in February, asking the public to stay updated on future developments.
