Cannabis Business Law
Without the proper licenses and insurance in place, a new cannabis business could be shut down, causing owners to lose their entire investment. The legal cannabis industry is growing, evolving, and highly-regulated. In order to succeed, it is a must that participants are aware of and adhere strictly to each state's regulatory scheme, especially given the reality that marijuana is illegal under federal law for all purposes. Our cannabis business law practice includes:
- Cannabis Business Licensing
- Regulatory Scheme Compliance
- Cannabis Patent Law
- Cannabis Trademark Law
- Cannabis Business Banking
- Cannabis Business Insurance
- Cannabis Revenue Taxation
- Cannabis Business Zoning
- Landlord/Tenant Disputes between Property Owners and Cannabis Businesses
- Asset Seizure and Civil Forfeiture of Property of Cannabis Industry Participants
- Employer's Duty with regard to Legal Cannabis Use and Medical Marijuana Employees
- Personal Injury Under the Influence of Legal Cannabis
Marijuana crimes continue to be among the most common criminal charges. Though attitudes towards marijuana use are changing, some district attorneys are still coming down hard on anyone caught with marijuana, even if it is for medical use. Without the proper licensing in place, dispensaries, wholesalers, and growers can face criminal charges. Our criminal defense practice includes:
- Defending Individuals and Cannabis Businesses Against Drug Charges
- Expunging Marijuana Arrest Records
- Post-Conviction Litigation of Drug Charges
