Jeffrey Hoffman

Cannabis Attorney

My practice focuses on clients in the cannabis industry, including licensees in the adult-use cannabis market, practitioners in the medical cannabis space, and cannabis adjacent product and service providers. Think of me as your Cannabis Consigliere.

I have a particular interest in social and economic equity cannabis license applicants, and I also inform and assist those convicted of cannabis offenses in getting such convictions expunged from their record.

Matters and Publications

  • I worked with New Jersey attorney Kathleen Redpath-Perez to free Humberto Ramirez from jail. Mr. Ramirez, a nonviolent cannabis offender, was sentenced to 2 to 7 for the possession of six pounds of cannabis on November 17, 2020 – two weeks after the citizens of New Jersey voted to legalize cannabis. In conjunction with Ms. Redpath-Perez, we were able to get Mr. Ramirez’s judgement of conviction modified to remove the mandatory minimum, as per the New Jersey AD’s directive, which enabled Mr. Ramirez’s release.
  • Every Wednesday at 4:20pm I host “Ask Me Anything about Cannabis Legalization in New York” as a live event on LinkedIn.
  • Cannabis Law Journal “New York’s Journey to Cannabis Legalization and Licensing
