Our Cannabis Law Practice Group functions as a comprehensive business advisory and maintains deep knowledge of the often conflicting federal, state, and local laws, regulations, and governmental guidance currently in play. In addition to helping clients navigate the evolving legal and regulatory landscape, the Mazzola Lindstrom team serves as outside general counsel to a wide variety of cannabis industry players, advising on enforcement of contracts, employment laws, intellectual property, and all manner of corporate and operational matters. We also have experience with cannabis-related civil litigation and dispute resolution.
We have deep knowledge of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the 2018 Farm Bill), as well as Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Department of Agriculture (USDA), and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations and guidance, and state-specific marijuana and hemp regulations. Our lawyers are sought-after thought-leaders and have spoken before the Committee on Cannabis Law of the New York State Bar Association on cannabis-related civil litigation, as well as having collaborated with experts in the field of scientific exploration on the use and laboratory testing of hemp and other CBD products.
