Marijuana Business Lawyers
Every state that has legalized cannabis for either medical or recreational use has implemented rules and regulations to govern the program and ensure that legal cannabis remains within the legal system and does not get diverted to the black market. These regulatory regimes also include rules governing product safety, packaging, facility security, and other areas cannabis operations. It is fair to say that nearly every aspect of the cannabis industry is regulated by the state and local government.
Failure to comply with the rules and regulations of your state’s cannabis program can lead to fines, penalties, and even revocation of your business license. State officials and regulators view a cannabis business license as a privilege and have no issue revoking that privilege if a cannabis business doesn’t comply with the rules. Because of this, regulatory compliance is a critical component of any successful cannabis business.
Developing a comprehensive regulatory compliance plan is a great way to ensure that your business stays within the rules and regulations governing the cannabis program. This requires a careful review of the rules and developing mechanisms to ensure they are always followed by owners, employees, and other individuals at your cannabis business. Implementing a successful regulatory compliance program takes buy in from individuals at all levels of the business, from ownership to entry level employees.
