The cannabis industry continues to grow rapidly, even as state and federal laws remain mired in conflict. A majority of states have legalized cannabis for medicinal purposes, and many are laying the groundwork for recreational use. In addition, following the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, states have turned toward the production of hemp and cannabidiol (CBD) products. Though this explosive growth has led to tremendous opportunities in industries such as health and wellness, pharmaceuticals, personal care, and food products, businesses and investors face unprecedented challenges in navigating complex and often conflicting local, state, and federal regulations.

Success in this emerging and sensitive industry requires a legal team offering more than a comprehensive knowledge of its evolving laws. Equally critical is an understanding of its intersection with the federal and state consumer protection regulations that impact an array of business and operational matters, including licensing, marketing and advertising, product labeling, sales practices, consumer outreach, and compliance for physicians. Companies operating outside the cannabis industry must also contend with its impact on their operations as they develop workplace policies addressing matters such as employee drug testing, insurance, and workers’ compensation.

With previous experience as former state regulators, the M&S team brings an intimate and practical knowledge of the law and a nuanced approach earned through decades of working within other highly regulated industries. Whether you operate in the cannabis marketplace or are simply looking to manage the impact of medical marijuana in your workplace, we can help you understand, comply, adapt, and thrive against this evolving regulatory landscape.
