Vital Legal Guidance On Cannabis Commerce

We know that it is crucial for our clients to receive clear headed and informed legal advice in order to minimize risk and liability in the ever changing cannabis sector. 

To us, cannabis commerce and cannabis advocacy are two sides of the same coin. The more education we provide to the industry, the public, and public officials the more likely we are to have freer and broader commerce. Similarly, as commerce in cannabis products grows education and awareness increases. This results in people, businesses, and government agencies who are stakeholders in the cannabis industry. In other words, advocacy and commerce are a virtuous cycle. For these reasons, we take our role and responsibility seriously. First and foremost, we take time to learn and follow the laws as they evolve and change, both in the US and throughout the world. Our clients are some of the best informed in the cannabis industry. Second, through writing and speaking we focus our efforts on educating the public on the rapidly evolving cannabis sector. Third, we use our unique position to influence positive changes and, whenever possible, to steer the law in ways that are beneficial to our clients and the industry as a whole. In short, we believe that commerce is the key to unlocking the benefits of cannabis to the US and the world.
