Marijuana

Vast experience in a budding industry.

Husch Blackwell has one of the largest and most experienced teams in the nation dedicated to the marijuana industry, with more than 60 attorneys nationwide. Our clients include not only the nation’s largest cannabis companies, but also large multinational companies making their first forays into cannabis

Led by a USA Nationwide Tier 1 lawyer in Cannabis Law in the 2019 Chambers USA legal directory, our team is a recognized leader in the industry with members dedicated to the practice of cannabis law, not merely a collection of attorneys who happen to have handled a few related deals and cases. Additionally, our team tackles marijuana regulatory matters across the nation – including California, Colorado, Missouri and New York.

In the Marijuana industry, we regularly represent medical and adult-use marijuana stores, medical and adult-use marijuana cultivations, manufacturers of marijuana-infused products, marijuana testing facilities, marijuana technology companies, industrial hemp farms and processors, landlords, private equity funds, public companies (U.S. and Canada), credit unions and security companies. Additionally, we counsel investors for these companies.
