Musgrove and Smith Law

Our firm can represent businesses which are facing city or county bans or restrictions for operating a medical marijuana business in Mississippi. We would conduct a conflict check which would be standard for any attorney. Our firm recognizes that there will be some objectors and obstacles on the path to medical marijuana business growth and maturity. We stand ready to represent our clients against counties, municipalities, or any other agencies of the state that fail to carry out the provisions of Initiative 65 as now placed in the Constitution of Mississippi.

When Hiring Your Law Firm, How Will You Keep Our Company In Compliance With Medical Marijuana and Cannabis Laws in Mississippi?

It is so important to understand Mississippi cannabis and marijuana law, including the initial regulations and the factors being considered by the State Department of Health. As medical marijuana lawyers who represent medical marijuana businesses, it’s our job and responsibility to keep up with the rules and regulations, to seek a potential change of regulations which are not working, and to make sure that we’re knowledgeable and can pass along pertinent information to our clients regarding any changes in the rules and regulations. Making sure that our medical marijuana business clients remain in compliance is very important; this is what we do, and this is essential to making sure there is no stoppage in the operation of a business.

What Is Your Current Involvement In The Medical Marijuana Business Movement In Mississippi And How Do Your Connections And Understanding Of The Industry Help Your Clients?

All of us have heard the term, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” In this arena, it is important to know the rules and regulations and to comment on those as they’re being formulated. My background in Mississippi has been pretty broad, and consequently, I know many people in the State Department of Health and the state agencies. We have great people in our agencies, but they are tasked with regulations for a new industry. It will be a challenge.

I believe that it’s important to hire a medical marijuana lawyer who was involved early on in the process, as I was, and who understands the rules and regulations from across the country studied by our firm. We have a very good understanding of the rules and regulations in other states, such as Oregon, Oklahoma, and Colorado, and a pretty good idea of what the state of Mississippi is going to be looking at when they adopt rules and regulations under Mississippi cannabis and medical marijuana law. I believe this gives our clients an added benefit or a leg up, so to speak, on the competition in Mississippi.

What Would You Recommend For Someone Who Is Preparing To Start A Medical Marijuana Business In Mississippi? Aside From Hiring Your Firm, What Can They Do To Get Ahead Of The Competition?

Anyone who has been in the medical marijuana business in other states, knows how important it is to have a business plan and a blueprint to follow which will ensure success. One could look at states of similar size and demographics as Mississippi and examine potential market share and potential market sales.

The medical marijuana lawyers at our firm can provide a lot of information about Mississippi which will help in the preparation of a business model, as well as keep clients informed of the debate, hearings, and status of the proposed regulations which will go into effect on July 1, 2021.
