*Notwithstanding recent changes in state laws, federal law remains unchanged and the cultivation, possession and/or sale of cannabis and cannabis products continues to be illegal under federal law.  For that reason, our services are strictly limited to advising clients regarding the validity, scope and meaning of state laws regarding medical and other legal forms of adult-use cannabis. None of our services are intended to assist clients with violations of federal law.
