Many businesses seeking to develop and operate a marijuana business at a specific site often do not understand whether such marijuana use is allowed on the property and, even if the use is allowed, whether it is feasible for a marijuana business to locate there.  They often do not understand the standards and regulations that states and local governments have adopted to apply to marijuana uses on a particular property or in a particular community. Additionally, local governments are often seeking methods of limiting the perceived negative impacts of marijuana businesses on surrounding areas, while still taking advantage of economic development opportunities presented by the new marijuana industry. This topic helps marijuana businesses, as well as those involved in assisting marijuana businesses, to identify and analyze potential state and local land use laws applicable to such businesses so that they are able to accurately and efficiently vet potential business locations. This material also informs local governments of possible standards and regulations that they may utilize to allow marijuana businesses within their jurisdictions while maintaining livability standards for their community members.
