Counseled Client through Licensure Process

Client: Licensed medical marijuana cultivator

After securing a provisional license to cultivate medicinal cannabis, our client sought to amend its original application plans after a local industrial park association retracted prior structural approval for facility plans. The Ohio Department of Commerce rejected proposed amendments to the applicant’s facility plans and moved to revoke the client’s provisional license. We negotiated with the association and the department and resolved the matter through revised structural plans that satisfied association bylaws, as well as other corrective actions and remedies approved by the department by way of a consent agreement and dismissal of the proposed revocation action. The client has since been granted a full license to cultivate and is successfully operating in northeast Ohio.
