Because it is federally illegal, investors in other industries have been reticent to venture into the marijuana industry, fearing their money would not be secured, subject to confiscation by law enforcement, or that a return on investment may not be guaranteed with illegal businesses. Yet recent California legislation now sets the stage for local and state licensing starting in 2018, providing marijuana businesses with significantly more legitimacy. While federal policy and regulations remain a concern, 26 states in this country now have laws on their books legalizing marijuana in some form (State Marijuana Laws in 2016 Map). With considerable experience in cannabis and perspective from our experience with many other industries, our consultants understand the value of proper approvals, insurance, and other safe-guards necessary to guarantee a sound investment.
