As medical marijuana comes to Florida many are excited to "get in" on the ground floor - but most also have questions and are not sure where to start. The goal of this group is to help those planning to start a medical marijuana business or ancillary service in Florida. Meetings are hosted by experienced startup attorney David H. Salmon, Esq. Meetings are informal and discussion topics touch on all things related to Florida’s emerging medical marijuana industry. Typical topics include: the application process, legal updates, startup concerns, structuring your new venture and partnership agreements, dispensary and grow operation set up and best practices, security, money processing, compliance, extracts and edible production, startup costs, location identification and build outs, ancillary businesses, and hiring professionals. Note, absolutely no marijuana possession, sale, or consumption will be tolerated at any time. This group is only for those serious about learning more and starting a legal medical marijuana business or ancillary service.
