The Legal Issues Surrounding Marijuana Law in California

With recent efforts to decriminalize marijuana in California and nationwide, there are many opportunities for entrepreneurs to start medical marijuana businesses in states where legalization is pushing forward. Our Los Angeles firm helps with the following issues related to marijuana law:

  • Medical marijuana business formation. Medical marijuana is a highly regulated industry. You need to meet strict standards to be approved to start a dispensary or related business in any state where it is legal to do so. We help you work through this often complex process.
  • Medical uses of marijuana. The medical benefits of marijuana are becoming accepted in our society, with thousands of people throughout California using it to treat illnesses and diseases such as cancer, HIV/AIDS and chronic pain.
  • Marijuana legal trends. We support the decriminalization of marijuana in California and the United States and stay on top of all the latest trends and precedents in this unique area of the law. You benefit from our knowledge and experience.
