Integrated Cannabis Company

Expertise: Cannabis, Codes and Regulations, Government Relations, Public Affairs

Overview

The expanded legalization of cannabis in Massachusetts has created a competitive marketplace for businesses to enter and thrive. As one of the fastest growing industries, our firm has played a distinct role helping various stakeholders gain approvals, licenses and market share. Our team was hired by a woman owned and Massachusetts based, vertically integrated cannabis company to help it win its host community agreement as well as secure local support and regulatory approvals in a Massachusetts town.

Our Work

Our team quickly began facilitating the conversation between the client and the Cannabis Control Commission (CCC), providing insightful policy context to the client and guiding them through the newly formed licensing process. In addition to working directly with the CCC, our team facilitated several community meetings and worked with community groups, local nonprofits and town officials to secure support for the company.

Results

Ultimately, the CCC approved licenses for retail, cultivation and manufacturing, making our client one of the first cannabis applicants to successfully go through the licensing processes as well as one of the first cannabis companies to open its doors for consumers.
