Providing Clarity To Clients In An Opportunity-Filled

Yet Highly Regulated Space


A historically banned substance, marijuana or cannabis, is now becoming legal for recreational use at a dizzying pace across the United States. As a result, the business landscape for cannabis, marijuana, and related offerings such as CBD and hemp, is filled with immense opportunity but at the same time is subjected to intense and numerous regulatory regimes and risks from both the local, state and federal levels. These laws can be complex and sometimes even contradictory leading to significant challenges for marijuana business operators trying to comply with the law. From New York’s Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act (“MRTA”) to federal laws, at RICHT, we help clients navigate the often murky and opaque legal considerations. Our priority is to ensure that clients in the cannabis and marijuana spaces can maximize their business success while avoiding legal and regulatory risks.


Possession, use, distribution, and sale of cannabis are illegal under federal law, even though some states have legalized the same. Therefore, the legal counseling we provide is only intended to help clients comply with the relevant laws, including the state level, but not to provide guidance or assistance in violating federal law.
