From Where Can You Legally Get Your First Marijuana Crop? Good Question.

By Hilary Bricken on September 17, 2014

We are always getting questions from our clients on how to manage their cannabis businesses in the context of legalization. How do we protect our brand name? How do we license our brand to other states? How do we make sure we are complying with packaging and labeling regulations? Are we allowed to advertise? How do we handle our employee issues? The list goes on and on.

As our cannabis lawyers increasingly do legal work in newly legalized states, however, one legal question seems to dominate our discussions: where are growers supposed to get their start-up inventory in a “legal” marijuana marketplace? The answer is typically anything but straightforward and it definitely varies from state to state, though most states are willing to look the other way when it comes to where ”legal” growers obtain their initial crops. The below is a brief run-down on how various states treat this seed issue.
