  • How Cannabis Businesses Succeed May 19, 2022
    We work with many large cannabis businesses and many small ones too. It’s fun to talk up the bigger fish, but I have a soft spot for the little guys.

  • Cannabis Litigation: Perpetuating Testimony May 18, 2022
    Civil litigation in cannabis, like any other industry, usually proceeds in a predicable order. First, a complaint is filed and served.

  • Sometimes, the Parody Defense to Copyright Infringement Works! May 14, 2022

  • Signs of Life for the SAFE Banking Act? May 13, 2022
