Offit Kurman Attorney Reports in From the Maryland Cannabis Industry Association

mdcia-logo2-300x112Maryland is one of several states in the past few years to legalize the sale of medical cannabis, and local entrepreneurs are eager to obtain their licenses.

To serve this diverse group of business owners, Offit Kurman’s team of legal service providers have established a new Medical Cannabis Practice Group. Group members bring knowledge and experience in regulatory guidance, health care compliance, intellectual property, employment, tax law, and more.
