Marijuana Law Compliance and Legality Issues

This past election, California passed the "Control, Regulate, and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act" or better known as the "Adult Use of Marijuana Act." Although recreational use and entrepreneurial avenues have had their shackles broken free by the state of California, it's still illegal to possess, cultivate, distribute, and manufacture marijuana under federal law.

Even if you're within strict compliance with California law, you and your business will remain at risk to be inflicted with federal criminal charges. Following the criminal charges for your cannabis commerce ambitions, your business will be shut down, and your assets will be seized by the federal government. However, there are methods to avoid such harsh charges while achieving compliance and maintaining good standing with California's legal guidelines, as well as the federal government.
