Cannabis Industry

Though Oklahoma’s medical-marijuana market is in its infancy, Crowe & Dunlevy’s Cannabis Industry Practice Group has advised and counseled clients in the legal-cannabis industry since 2017. Representing the interests of more than 100 marijuana and hemp businesses in Oklahoma, Colorado, Texas and Arkansas, Crowe & Dunlevy brings the resources and experience of a full-service corporate law firm to North America’s—and Oklahoma’s—fastest growing industry.

Before the passage of SQ 788, which legalized medical marijuana in Oklahoma, Crowe & Dunlevy’s Cannabis Industry Practice Group provided valuable counsel to industry insiders, lawmakers, and prospective industry participants, while regularly publishing articles and frequently speaking at community events to educate the public about new potential changes in the state’s law governing medical marijuana.

Now, with Oklahoma’s medical-marijuana and industrial-hemp markets both establishing their roots, Crowe & Dunlevy’s Cannabis Industry Practice Group continues to provide businesses in the industry crucial counsel concerning every facet of their development, operation and growth, including:

  • Entity formation
