Fox Rothschild LLP has recently published a survey on marijuana laws and regulations in response to the growing need for knowledge by companies in the medical cannabis industry. This guide provides the reader with a quick and efficient way of checking laws and statutes about cultivation, sale, distribution, and use.

Whether it be to alleviate a medical issue or purely for recreational use, marijuana is booming in the United States. California, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington, and the District of Columbia all have programs in place to regulate marijuana’s usage. The regulations in place, however, are not standardized and can prove quite difficult to decipher legally. Furthermore, consumption of marijuana is still illegal on a federal level.

Fox’s medical cannabis practice, which has been helping clients with their legal troubles for the past year, is comprised of over 30 expert members who routinely work for clients in industries that are subjected to heavy regulation. Growers, processors, distributors, and investors are all entities who are counseled by Fox’s practice.

Fox’s employed attorneys routinely work with clients on forming businesses, operational plans, and shareholder agreements. Land acquisition, licensing assistance, filing of state forms, and complying with state regulations are just a few of the services the practice offers.

Fox represents the Cannabis Consumer Coalition and has worked with clients on Illinois’ Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act. Fox has also advised clients in states with similar regulations.

The firm, which has a vast amount of experience with clients who work in industries with strict regulations, has a Gaming Practice. This practice advises companies on licensing, compliance, financing and operating, both locally and overseas.
