DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - November 11, 2016) - Eight of nine states with cannabis legalization on the ballot have passed their initiatives, proving the gain in momentum for those against the prohibition of marijuana. Bipartisan support of legalization spells progress for the cannabis industry. 28 states now have compassionate laws and 8 adult use states are now writing compliance regulations and legislation. Hoban Law Group has provided for the legal needs of cannabis entrepreneurs, government and stakeholders since 2008. Their dedication to the cause is well documented, particularly in the Colorado Court of Appeals and Centennial cases, where they tackled some of the most prominent issues medical marijuana advocates have faced. Honored to be named an award finalist in Community Protection and Community Activism by The Cannabist, Hoban Law Group is committed to continuing their work in consulting, management, regulatory, and product solution services. The firm is now operating in Puerto Rico, Uruguay and 15 US states, covering the entire commercial cannabis industry, serving THC, CBD and hemp business models.
"It is very exciting to be recognized by The Cannabist; one of the nation's premier journalistic voices on this topic. Further, it is an honor to be nominated by our peers and by other industry professionals. It is our goal at the HLG to foster an unprecedented level of professionalism and community involvement in the national and international cannabis (marijuana and hemp) industry. These principals are essential to its continued viability. On Election Day, our citizens spoke loudly regarding the legality of cannabis. The impetus remains on us, collectively, as the nation's leading cannabis professionals, to ensure that this industry continues to develop in a responsible and well-regulated manner." -- Bob Hoban, Managing Partner
