medical cannabis licensing
Several states, including Illinois, have legalized the use of medical marijuana by imposing a complex, highly regulated system of licenses for growers and distributors. In each state, several different state agencies are involved in the licensing process. Taft attorneys are at the cutting edge of this regulatory process, drawing on our deep relationships with various levels of each state government. Partner Barry Maram, former director of the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services, heads the Taft team in this area.
