Regulated Substances Practice Group

The Regulated Substances Practice Group is intricately involved in Florida legislation, legal issues and analysis related to medical marijuana regulation and related business operations. Since 2014, its attorneys have been advising clients on the challenges they face. They understand Florida’s rules and regulations regarding medical marijuana legalization and compliance.

Kelly Kronenberg uses its services and experience in the traditional business setting in order to assist in proper corporate planning, formation, and operation within the confines of Florida law as they apply to legalized medical marijuana.

Public opinion and the laws pertaining to regulated substances, including medical marijuana, are rapidly changing. In June 2017, the Florida legislature passed Senate Bill 8-A, which implements the Florida Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative, also known as Amendment 2.

The trend toward legalization of forms of marijuana are altering the interplay between state and federal laws and creating a large and vibrant marketplace for businesses in selling regulated substances. Overlapping and evolving regulations present unprecedented challenges for companies that seek to proactively address the impact of the marijuana industry on their businesses.

Our attorneys research, review and analyze other states’ laws and regulations relating to medical marijuana in order to better assist our clients with issues in Florida relating to their businesses, including potential workers’ compensation claims, labor and employment matters, litigation, and general liability.

The Regulated Substances Practice Group attorneys and professionals leverage their diverse practice experience to provide comprehensive legal representation to clients.
