Real Estate Transactions

Real Estate Transactions

Marijuana Business Lawyers

Real estate is one of the most important aspects of the cannabis industry. Nearly every state requires that cannabis entrepreneurs purchase or lease properly zoned real estate prior to submitting a license application. Licenses, once they’re issued, are tied to the real estate and cannabis businesses typically must submit additional applications to change locations.

Each state and municipality has different rules, regulations, and ordinances that determine where cannabis businesses are allowed to operate. Most states require licensees to be several hundred feet from any school or daycare facility, and some include distance restrictions from churches and other cannabis business. Local governments may restrict cannabis businesses to industrial or commercially zoned areas or simply ban them altogether.

After you’ve identified the right location, the next step is working with the landlord or seller to lease or purchase the property. If you’re leasing your property, it is critically important that your landlord approve, in writing, that the building is being used for a cannabis business. Other than that, real estate transactions in the cannabis aren’t much different than standard commercial real estate deals but having an experienced cannabis attorney help you through the process can save time, effort, and money in the long run.
