Cannabis Law

Cannabis legalization can be difficult to follow.  The laws are in a constant state of evolution and there is a lack of uniformity between the states and the federal government. This can make starting a cannabis business confusing and risky. Whether you are starting a cannabis business, already in the industry, or just curious about your options, you can learn about a wide range of cannabis topics.

The Cannabis Industry Is Growing

You should be informed about the history of marijuana legislation and which states have decriminalized marijuana. Find easy-to-understand information tailored to cannabis business owners and entrepreneurs, including explanations of how to invest in marijuana stocks, marijuana delivery service laws, dispensary banking issues, cannabis business ideas, and how to legally purchase cannabis seeds.


You can also find information about criminal charges related to marijuana possession, cultivation, use, and your legal options.


Problems Marijuana Business Owners Face

The contradiction between state and federal law has caused a major headache for cannabis business owners and entrepreneurs.


Larger cannabis operations could be shut down by the DEA, and legal cannabusinesses must compete with a significant black market.


Marijuana businesses also face more pragmatic issues like not being able to open a bank account, problems finding insurance, and the inability to deduct expenses on federal tax returns — all because marijuana is illegal under federal law.


Hiring a Cannabis Attorney Can Help

The cannabis industry is one that business owners and entrepreneurs need to enter with as much knowledge and guidance as possible.


Assistance from an attorney well-versed in cannabis law is crucial in order to protect business ventures and to stay out of trouble with the federal government.
