The federal government first classified marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance under the Controlled Substance Act in 1970. This classification made the use, possession, sale, cultivation and transportation of marijuana in the United States illegal. However, in 1996, individual states began passing laws and initiatives to decriminalize cannabis for recreational or medical use.
If you want to get involved in this industry, you should speak with an attorney before moving forward. Otherwise you may risk losing your medical license or facing criminal penalties, DEA raids and IRS fines.
