Moriconi Flowers handles regulated cannabis business services nationwide and abroad. However, its practice is focused on Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The passage of Pennsylvania’s Act 16 and the prospect of commercial marijuana regulation in New Jersey present opportunities, but also demands extraordinary regulation. Our attorneys have been practicing in the regulated cannabis space since 2014 – two years prior to passage of Act 16 and are part of the professional wave that is washing over the regulated cannabis industry on the East Coast.
