Hospitals, private physicians and other businesses seeking to establish medical marijuana-related businesses must, in addition to complying with the new law’s specific requirements, comply with numerous land use regulations. Medical marijuana businesses in other states have faced significant obstacles in connection with local land use regulations. Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to advise clients with respect to land use permits and land use proceedings potentially affecting the proposed location of medical marijuana facilities, including zoning and other code review, permits, variances, special exceptions and development agreements. Attorneys in our Real Estate practice have significant experience in representing clients in connection with the negotiation, drafting, and modification of leases, another area where medical marijuana businesses have unique needs.
