Compliance Advice for the Cannabis Industry
Legal Protection for Cannabis Producers
The Law Offices of James F. DeMartini counsels clients on California’s current marijuana regulations, with an emphasis on local rules pertaining to Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino, and Humboldt Counties. We provide strategic advice and pro-active guidance to ensure that our clients are fully informed about the compliance and consumer product issues that surround this burgeoning industry in California. We offer expert assistance to guide and inform clients through the necessary licensing process to ensure accordance with the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MCRSA) and the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA).
The Sonoma County cannabis tax has passed and the county is getting ready to accept applications for commercial cannabis business permits. Humboldt County is forging ahead with their active permitting process.
If you are operating in Sonoma, Humboldt, or Mendocino Counties, or wish to do so in the future, you need to start preparing the lengthy county permit applications NOW. California state law says that you must have a local permit before you can apply for a state cannabis permit.
Our team of attorneys, environmental consultants, and accountants can help you apply for county permits.
The cannabis industry is still ILLEGAL under federal law, and we can’t help you break the law, but our team of experts can assist you in meeting your obligations under current California and local laws.
