Cardiff Cannabis Business Lawyers

Attorneys in California for Administrative Proceedings Related to Marijuana Businesses

With the passage of the Medicinal and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA), California lawmakers have initiated serious efforts to legitimize the state's cannabis industry. The days of loose regulations and minimal government oversight are gone, and anyone who wishes to own and operate a commercial cannabis business must undergo a rigorous licensing process. At Green Wise Legal, P.C., (GWL) we understand that obtaining and keeping a cannabis business license may require various administrative hearings. Our experienced attorneys can represent your interests in all types of hearings, as well as any appeals proceedings.

Assistance with Administrative Hearings

The California commercial cannabis industry is governed by a dual licensing system. This means that opening a cannabis business requires both a license from the local municipality as well as a license from the state of California. To qualify for your licenses, you will need to go through an exhaustive application process to be sure that your business with all applicable laws, regulations, and guidelines. In many cases, the government entities involved will require business owners to attend administrative hearings for the purpose of gathering information, addressing concerns, and clarifying details.

Administrative hearings may also be necessary after you have obtained your licenses. You may be required to attend a hearing for suspected regulatory violations or any other concerns regarding compliance. The skilled attorneys at GWL provide comprehensive representation for cannabis business owners in all kinds of administrative hearings, including those regarding the denial or revocation of your license.

Protecting Your Rights During an Appeal

If an administrative hearing does not result in a favorable outcome, California law gives you the right to appeal the hearing board's decisions. The appeals process, however, can be confusing, complex, and time-consuming. There may be a limited amount of time in which to file your appeal, for example, as well as requirements regarding what documentation must be submitted. Failure to file your appeal properly could result in unnecessary delays or an outright denial.
