    Product Description

    Nationally, the cannabis industry continues to experience unprecedented growth. Despite increasing numbers of states allowing some form of marijuana use, as well as widespread public approval for Federal marijuana reform, the interplay between complex state regulatory schemes and continued federal prohibition continues, however, to pose inherent legal uncertainties in this field.

    Counsel for marijuana businesses must address unique legal issues relating to regulatory compliance, state and local licensing, and Federal prohibition and policy, while also addressing standard business law issues. This program analyzes key aspects of Massachusetts’ medical and adult-use marijuana laws pertinent to business law practitioners—such as those relating to licensing, permitting, financing, corporate structure, and tax considerations—and features discussion of applicable Federal law and risk assessments. Hear the latest from expert panelists who provide insight into the complex business and legal issues underlying marijuana dispensary operations.
