Our Core Competencies
Baghoomian Law first gained statewide recognition in 2018 after being recognized as the premiere licensing firm in the California cannabis space.
In California, individuals and businesses must obtain a license from the Department of Cannabis Control to legally cultivate, distribute, transport, and sell marijuana or medical marijuana. The application process is straightforward but not easy. An applicant must fill out an application, pay a fee, and provide proof of compliance with local regulations. Once the application is reviewed and approved, the licensee will receive a physical license that must be displayed at their place of business.
Many cannabis companies incorrectly believe the battle is won once a license is issued. Many operators begin to think that after licensure, a cannabis law becomes nothing more than a suggestion from the government. Nothing could be further from the truth. Compliance with not just some laws but with every cannabis law is the only thing keeping a business from having its cannabis licenses threatened by becoming involved in an administrative or even criminal matter.
A regulatory compliance program tailored to address each law and regulation is crucial for any business in the cannabis industry, as it ensures that the company operates within the legal and ethical boundaries set by the DCC and the relevant local agency. It protects the organization from potential legal consequences and reputational damage.
A strong compliance program can improve overall business efficiency by providing clear guidelines and procedures for employees to follow. It also fosters a culture of accountability and transparency, which is essential for building trust with customers and stakeholders. In short, a regulatory compliance program is essential for maintaining the integrity and viability of a business.
