As the legal cannabis market in the United States rapidly expands and matures, businesses that intersect with this dynamic and heavily regulated industry must navigate a host of constantly evolving legal, practical, and financial challenges.
In many ways, adult-use and medical cannabis interests face the same issues as every other business – corporate formation and governance, financing and investment, licensing, real estate, and zoning, among others. The unique and unsettled legal status of cannabis, however, makes it even more essential that businesses in the industry work with counsel who have a comprehensive understanding of the young, multifaceted, and ever-changing legal, regulatory, and business landscape of cannabis.
