The majority (if not all) of cannabis regulatory schemes implement a dual licensing system wherein local government is empowered to regulate cannabis, up to and including banning commercial cannabis activity altogether in their jurisdiction. Sitting down with state and local cannabis regulators tends to be a common cannabis client request, therefore. It’s critical to be well-versed in state law, as well as the policy concerns that surround cannabis. The ability to educate regulators as to the current studies in regards to legalization’s effect on children, crime rates, etc. may fall outside the scope of traditional legal work, but is critical to being a well-rounded advocate.
