Jonathan Havens, chair of the Firm's Food and Beverage Practice and co-chair of its Cannabis Law Practice, co-authored this article with 2019 summer associate, Anamika Roy. The pair discuss potential roadblocks to the investment in marijuana-related facilities.

"While the public’s attitude toward medical and adult-use cannabis appears to be evolving, the opinions of many municipal governments haven’t changed much. They continue to restrict cannabis businesses in their communities through zoning ordinances, moratoriums and other measures," wrote Jonathan and Anamika.
