Our Practices

Regulated Substances Practice Group

The Attorneys and personnel in Kelley Kronenberg’s Regulated Substances practice group have been intricately involved in the state legislation, legal issues and analysis related to medical marijuana regulation and related business operation throughout the state.

Our Regulated Substances practice group Attorneys understand the rules and regulations regarding medical marijuana legalization compliance in Florida. While the full implementation of medical marijuana based on the language of Amendment 2 is constantly evolving and outside the scope of Florida’s Senate Bill 1030 and HB 307, our Regulated Substances Attorneys have hands on, in-depth, and comprehensive knowledge of the medical cannabis industry.

Our attorneys have researched, reviewed and analyzed other states laws and regulations relating to medical marijuana in order to be able to assist our clients with possible issues that may arise from the legalization of medical cannabis as it relates to their businesses, including potential workers’ compensation claims, labor and employment matters, environmental law, litigation, and general liability matters. Our Attorneys are dedicated to helping individuals and potential and existing businesses comply with and navigate Florida’s pending enactment of medical cannabis laws.
