More and more US states have legalized marijuana for recreational use in small amounts. In other states, medical marijuana may be available to eligible patients. However, many more states have decriminalized small amounts of the drug. This means recreational marijuana use in these states is considered a civil or local infraction, taking jail time off the table. Some lawyers specialize in marijuana criminal defense, working to protect their clients from unfair sentencing regarding marijuana use.
However, with the rise in popularity of products containing CBD, there is a new need for another kind of marijuana lawyer. Cannabis business lawyers help business owners producing CBD and hemp products, make sure they are following the law and protecting their company from legal risk based on the cannabis laws in their state. The cannabis industry is heavily regulated, and starting a cannabis business or beginning to sell CBD products within an already existing business involves substantial startup complications and extensive licensing. With so many hoops to jump through in the sale of these products and the consequences for failing to follow industry regulations particularly severe, it’s extremely important to get the help of an experienced cannabis business attorney before beginning to acquire and sell any product containing any form of hemp or cannabis.
A cannabis attorney can ensure that every box has been checked and proper licenses obtained to protect the company, management, employees and even customers from unjust persecution. The cannabis business attorney can help with licensing start-up and formation, marketing and advertising, packaging and labeling, restrictions, banking as well as trademarks and copyrights. Proving licensing of cultivators, extractors dispensaries, manufacturing and distribution of companies involved can protect all parties from unfair legal recourse. These attorneys can also help business owners apply for the licenses they need to sell CBD products.
