Washington State Liquor & Cannabis Board Enforcement

The WSLCB is the state government agency in charge of the drafting and implementing cannabis regulations, issuing cannabis licenses, and enforcing the regulations as applied to licensed entities. The WSLCB has created strict and broad-reaching regulations. These include ownership and financing requirements, minimum security requirements, advertising restrictions, traceability or anti-diversion requirements, and many other requirements intended to comply with federal guidance on state marijuana operations. We ensure our clients remain well-informed and well-advised to avoid any undue issues. If you have questions on regulations, talk with one of our marijuana business attorneys to learn more.

In-House General Counsel Services

In addition to traditional representation of businesses, we offer in-house general counsel legal services. If you have a need for an in-house, on-site attorney presence, we offer fixed rates for full on-site days. We offer this as a cost benefit to small and mid-size businesses whose needs do not warrant a full-time attorney, but who have consistent legal counsel needs.

We will work together to determine an appropriate schedule to fit your needs. On that day, an attorney from Halverson Law will be on site with your business. During that day, your business will have the undivided attention of your in-house attorney, and the in-house attorney will work diligently to address as many deliverables as possible.

Give us a call today and speak with an i502 marijuana business attorney or stop by to set up an appointment. We have plenty of off-street parking, a friendly and professional staff, and a comfortable and casual office environment. We’re looking forward to helping you grow and cultivate your dream.
