Prepare To Grow Your Cannabis Business In Virginia

The commonwealth of Virginia has allowed the cultivation of pharmaceutical marijuana for several years. As of July 1, 2021, the possession and sharing of marijuana among adults for personal use have also been legalized. Adults may now grow up to four plants for personal use on their residence. Business owners who plan to enter the market are naturally eager to get their enterprises off the ground once the legalization of nonmedical cannabis businesses expands as expected.

The recent legalization of recreational marijuana in Virginia, in addition to the existing hemp market, promises to open doors for a myriad of opportunities for businesses to get involved in the cannabis industry. However, properly conducting business in the cannabis industry requires strict adherence to state and federal regulations. Our attorneys understand not only the complexities of the cannabis industry but the science involved as well. We are ready to help your business get set to grow and thrive.
