Government & Policy

Governmental bodies responsible for implementing new laws, rules, and regulations for the cannabis industry – both hemp and marijuana – face the daunting task of creating a system from scratch that will meet all of their constituents’ unique needs. Whether in the conception, drafting, implementation, enforcement, evolution, or any other stage of governing regulated cannabis, we have expert attorneys available to provide a full suite of legal, policy, and advisory services to assist governmental bodies with the development and implementation of laws and regulations governing programs for medical marijuana, adult-use marijuana, and hemp. Crafting effective policy-making requires institutional knowledge that few possess.

The Hoban Law Group’s government and policy legal team can help with:

  • Advising on existing precedent and model and solution-oriented legislative and regulatory frameworks;
  • Evaluation of existing cannabis-related laws on a jurisdictional basis;
  • Consultation on policy-setting based upon the needs of the government and constituency;
  • Evaluating the global trends in regulations.

Hoban Law Group is a global leader that’s been intimately involved in shaping marijuana and hemp laws, policy, and regulations around the world. Our policy team is uniquely capable to identify core legal and regulatory issues that differ jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction to craft effective solutions.
