Cannabis Retailing Lawyers in Roanoke
Helping Virginia Retailers Understand Their Rights
The cannabis industry has presented emerging business opportunities but remains complex and challenging to navigate. With strict marijuana laws that vary from state to state and varying levels of regulation within the industry, it can be difficult to know whether your business is operating lawfully. You need a Roanoke cannabis retailing attorney who can guide you through the complex laws surrounding cannabis law.
As a knowledgeable and experienced cannabis business lawyer, Attorney Tyson Daniel understands the struggles that cannabis retailers face – and note that only Hemp is legal in Virginia. Recreational marijuana is illegal and Medical Marijuana is highly regulated. Virginia Hemp Lawyers™ can help you remain compliant and avoid penalties and litigation associated with your retail business.
Purchasing & Selling Cannabis Products in Virginia
Though medical marijuana remains illegal in Virginia, patients in the state can apply for a medical cannabis card. Patients must receive a written certification from a registered practitioner and then apply for registration with the Board of Pharmacy before they can possess medical cannabis products.
Currently, THC-A and CBD oil can only be produced and sold in Virginia by “pharmaceutical processors,” which are specially licensed businesses. Only five pharmaceutical processors have been approved to produce and dispense these oils.
That said, CBD products have been marketed and sold throughout the state. From organic health food stores to gas stations, you may have seen products like CBD tea or CBD skin cream. This is because hemp production is legal in the state – and CBD can be derived from hemp.
The laws and regulations surrounding cannabis products are undoubtedly complex. If you are a retailer, it is in your best interest to consult with our cannabis business lawyer who can advise you accordingly and provide the customized counsel you need to to grow your business.
Cannabis Advertising Compliance
In Virginia, it is illegal for anyone other than a pharmaceutical processor to advertise the sale or distribution of marijuana.
Certain digital platforms like Google have banned ads for marijuana. But what about other advertising options – like billboards, print ads, and web banner ads? As federal laws and state advertising regulations change, intersect, and contradict each other, businesses are left confused about what they can and cannot say in advertisements. With our Roanoke cannabis retail lawyers on your side, you can better understand your rights and the legal limits of your marketing efforts.
