Advising Businesses and Individuals in Florida’s Cannabis Industry
The laws and regulations in Florida governing marijuana are not only complex, they are rapidly changing. While Florida joined the growing number of jurisdictions legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes in 2016 with the passage of Amendment 2 (also known as the “Florida Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative”), recreational marijuana use still remains illegal.
Moreover, the rules and regulations governing the use of medical marijuana are still developing, which can lead both cannabis businesses and patients confused of their rights and responsibilities.
At Greenspoon Marder, we recognize that the legal landscape for marijuana use in Florida and across the nation is continually evolving. Our firm offers a dedicated practice group focused on helping cultivators, processors, dispensaries, investors, entrepreneurs and other industry participants formulate the right strategies to launch and expand their business operations. We regularly track legal trends and developments at the federal, state and local levels so that our clients have the most recent information they need to navigate this complex regulatory environment.
Below are just a few of the areas our marijuana lawyers can help you with:
- Medical Program. Our attorneys continually monitor the measures taken by Florida’s Department of Health, Office of Medical Marijuana Use to implement the burgeoning medical marijuana program. We are prepared to work with businesses in Florida seeking to cultivate, process and dispense medical marijuana along with physicians, patients and legal representatives participating in the statewide program.
- Licensing. Our firm assists clients in Florida and across the nation in obtaining the state and local businesses licenses they need to legally operate in a jurisdiction.
