Starting a Cannabis Business
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed July 30, 2020
The cannabis industry is flourishing. As it grows and develops, businesses and entrepreneurs have many opportunities to become involved in a relatively new industry, and much to gain from doing so. However, involvement in the cannabis industry also comes with a unique set of challenges.
Restrictive federal laws and ever-changing state regulations make the cannabis industry a dynamic environment for business owners; individuals who are considering starting cannabis-related businesses have a lot to consider. Knowing as much as possible about starting and operating a cannabis-related business within a particular state could be the difference between a new business's success and failure.
If you intend to start a cannabis-related business or are simply curious about how you would start such a business, FindLaw's Cannabis Law section is a valuable resource.
