Legalized cannabis is a rapidly expanding industry in the United States, and Fox Rothschild has assembled a national team of skilled and experienced attorneys to assist cannabis businesses at every step.

A growing list of jurisdictions now regulate its use for medical and/or recreational purposes, including: California, Colorado, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington and others.

Businesses in this exciting, emerging industry face unique issues – especially while the consumption of marijuana remains prohibited at the federal level – and therefore require smart, strategic advisers. 

We have experience working for highly regulated businesses and navigating the constantly evolving matrix of state compliance regulations. We also have deep experience in corporate and financing work, including banking, entity formation and venture capital. 

Cannabis growers, distributors, processors, investors and others also turn to Fox for practical and efficient advice on tax issues, real estate, intellectual property and employment law.

*Please be mindful that possessing, using, distributing and/or selling marijuana is a federal crime, and no legal advice we give is intended to provide any guidance or assistance in violating federal law nor will it provide any guidance or assistance in complying with federal law. Please also note that we are not advising you regarding the federal, state or local tax consequences of engaging in any business in this industry.
