The Margolin Book

In 2015, the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MMRSA) was signed and commercial cannabis use was legalized. Under the MMRSA, each licensee must be charged a licensure and renewal fee by a state licensing authority. The following business types are permitted under the MMRSA:

  • Cultivars with more than 4 acres of growing area
  • Manufacturers
  • Testing labs
  • Retail dispensaries
  • Distributors
  • Transporters

Our legal medical marijuana services include educating you on all types of cannabis business licenses, as well as the proper legal representation nessescary to obtain one of them.
