Cannabis & Hemp


Whether you are looking to enter the cannabis market or have already begun operations, we are available to assist and guide you in this rapidly-expanding industry. 

Legalized cannabis is a rapidly growing industry in many states around the United States. Marshall Melhorn attorneys are at the forefront of this new industry and are ready to use their experience to assist cannabis businesses at every step in the process. 

Cannabis and hemp businesses face unique challenges -- especially as they navigate the challenges of state support but federal prohibition of marijuana. This emerging industry, with its unique challenges and strengths, requires the help of confident, strategic advisers like those at Marshall Melhorn. 

We have experience working with highly regulated businesses in all stages of growth and helping them navigate new and constantly changing state compliance guidelines. And while this industry is new to the scene, Marshall Melhorn is not. Our attorneys have deep experience in regulation and compliance, agribusiness, entity formation, real estate and financing. 

Marshall Melhorn provides a full suite of services for Cannabis & Hemp businesses, including growers, retailers, distributors, and testing labs.
