John D. Fanburg, Co-Chair  •  Charles X. Gormally, Co-Chair

A growing number of states have instituted a legalized and regulated cannabis marketplace, while others are poised to seriously consider ending cannabis prohibition. With November 2020’s historic vote, New Jersey is getting ever closer to a regulated, adult-use marketplace. This emerging business development presents both challenges and opportunities affecting state and local governments; banking and taxation; real estate and land use regulation; healthcare and medical testing; and industries including food production, farming, packaging, and tourism. Brach Eichler’s Cannabis Practice is comprised of thought leaders across this industry spectrum. Our attorneys are uniquely qualified to navigate complicated and highly regulated marketplaces, while providing practical and informed guidance to entrepreneurs participating in this business.
