Legal Compliance: A Necessity for any Medical Marijuana Business in Florida


Just as you would consult an attorney when you start a bakery, auto shop or consulting firm, it is critical to consult a Florida licensed attorney before launching a medical marijuana business. Assistance from a marijuana attorney is especially important in the medical marijuana business because it is an emerging area of law and the governing rules and regulations are subject to change and interpretation.

For anyone intending to become involved in any aspect of the marijuana business industry in Florida, it is important to hire a knowledgeable and successful marijuana attorney who can help ensure compliance with complex marijuana laws.  Whether you are a medical marijuana patient, “recommending” physician, caregiver, or an owner or operator of a marijuana grow or medical marijuana treatment center or dispensary, our marijuana attorneys can provide guidance, advice and legal consultation.

Everyone involved in the cannabis industry must follow certain steps to complete the application and approval process in Florida to be allowed to legally participate in any business associated with the marijuana industry.  Just some of the legal issues integral to the process of participating in the Florida marijuana industry include:

  • Applications for registration, permitting, and/or licensing
  • Compliance with the laws relating to the cultivation, sale, delivery, certification, and use of medical and/or recreational marijuana
  • Financing and insurance
  • Lease or purchase contracts and negotiations
  • Litigation and Trial work
  • Employment screenings
  • Inspections and audits
  • Security
  • Business formation/dissolution paperwork
  • Legal challenges by state, county and/or local governments or agencies
