Most readers are aware that several states in the United States of America have legalized marijuana, which has led to a new industry being developed. The problem many of these industry participants have is the fact that marijuana is still illegal under federal law as well as many states. Though the federal government has not been actively and aggressively enforcing federal laws as it applies to marijuana. This is welcome news to many, but those who choose to either conduct business related to marijuana should seek legal advice in order to avoid the many pitfalls of this contradiction in the laws within the U.S. Recently, I was contacted by a Canadian law firm who shared the following chart and information with me, which I thought would be useful to any of my readers traveling to Canada and elsewhere. If you run into any problems, our firm handles criminal matters throughout the U.S. and also we provide consulting services to anyone seeking to step into the marijuana (cannabis) industry arena.
