Although it may not be something you think of when you open a cannabis business, you will likely have to deal with some officials in regards to your operations. Hiring a cannabis business law attorney can help ensure all of your bases are covered, from licensing and permitting to land use and zoning. However, you will still need to make sure that you take careful steps to lobby your government officials and hope to get in their good graces. At Stewart & Musell, LLP, we can help lead you in the right direction and assist with political advocacy.
Many government officials do not believe medical marijuana should be legal or have their personal opinions. While you may hope that they can be professional, this does not mean they won't have certain tendencies or biases against cannabis-related businesses. What you can do to help protect your operations is to have only the most positive dealings with your local officials. Our California lobbying lawyers are here to help you take the right actions to create and maintain strong community ties.
To put it in simple terms, lobbying helps you take any potential adversaries in the community and turn them into allies. By showing that yourself and your business are helping the community, you may be able to prove the business and political community you are a friend to the community.
Our firm wants to help you take the right steps towards long-term success. By establishing a positive reputation and continuing to maintain your compliance with our help, you will have the best chance of a successful cannabis operation.
