Understanding Marijuana and Cannabis Laws in the U.S.
Many state's approach to marijuana continues to be in flux, leaving individuals and companies understandably confused about what is legal and what is not.
For example, as of 2019, medical marijuana became legal in Louisiana, albeit under heavy restrictions. Marijuana for medicinal use can only be grown and distributed by a handful of state-approved facilities and dispensaries. To access medical marijuana, you must obtain a recommendation from a medical professional. Other states, however, do not have the same regulations, which is why it is important that you seek the help of experienced professionals that can tailor their legal approach to the unique circumstances of your particular state. Andry Law, LLC offer counsel and representation to clients from across the nation on a state by state basis.
Cannabis contains “THC” and “CBD,” among many other active compounds. THC is the psychoactive compound that produces the “high” traditionally associated with marijuana. Recreational THC consumption is not currently legal in Louisiana, though it is in several other states. Recreational consumption of CBD, however, is generally legal, as the compound is derived from hemp and does not generally contain substantial amounts of THC. There are, however, a myriad of regulations and permits needed for businesses to sell any cannabis product, including those with CBD. Andry Law, LLC is poised to assist clients throughout the permitting process.
Our New Orleans cannabis attorney can provide the knowledgeable guidance you need to safely enter and thrive in this exciting, growing industry. We thoroughly understand all current regulations and closely monitor new rule changes and emerging legislation.
