Cannabis and hemp are strictly regulated businesses with inherent and novel risks. From business formation and strategy to licensure and regulatory compliance, operating a cannabis or hemp business can be very complicated, especially in the face of conflicting federal, state and local legalities. Noncompliance with state regulations, local ordinances, and agency standards, no matter how minor, can threaten your business’ operations, success and profitability.
