The adult use, regulated sale, and cultivation of cannabis is a new and promising industry for Massachusetts, but also one that will be highly regulated. In December of 2016, Massachusetts legalized the adult use, regulated sale and cultivation of cannabis, while at the same time the Commonwealth’s medical marijuana industry continues to grow and evolve since it was first established under a 2012 referendum. Attorneys in Foley Hoag’s Massachusetts Cannabis Practice have unique insight and experience to assist cannabis and cannabis-related operators and investors with all aspects of their business from corporate formation and transactions, not-for-profit regulation, employment matters, trademark matters, banking and finance issues, coordination with Federal regulations, legislative issues, business and regulatory disputes, and real estate transactions.
