Marijuana/Cannabis Law

The Cannabis Industry is rapidly gaining momentum. Sweeney & Sheehan stays abreast of ever-changing state and federal laws, along with the dictates of state agencies and regulators. Our local presence, experience and knowledge benefit us in navigating through the complexities of a case to effectively counsel and inform our clients and provide the most cost-effective solutions. Our clients include the public and private sector.

Cannabis litigation includes premises liability, property damage, product liability and employment.  In addition to litigation, our lawyers also address employee and supervisory training, advise employers regarding provisions of employee handbooks, and provide presentations to managerial, supervisory, and non-supervisory employees.  We are cognizant of insurance concerns unique to the cannabis industry, and provide consultation on coverage issues with insurance carriers and cannabis businesses, from seed to sale, including growers, cultivators, distributors and dispensaries.

Our attorneys have founded and chair the cannabis committees for the N.J. Defense Association and the Camden County Bar Association. They have authored articles on industry-related news and have been asked to present on cannabis topics from various organizations.
