Real Estate Round Table: Cannabis in California

Real Estate Round Table: Cannabis In California: What property owners, real estate brokers and attorneys need to know about existing law and November’s ballot initiative to allow recreational use

The medical cannabis industry has grown substantially and as a result, the state has recently created detailed regulations to more closely regulate sales. Yet the federal government still has the right to seize the property of landlords who rent to MCD’s. Lara DeCaro will explain the new state regulations passed earlier this year, and the remaining risks to landlords, tenants, brokers and cannabis businesses. She will also update us on changing attitudes in Washington and will discuss how the potential passage of recreational marijuana legalization in California this November will affect the regulatory scheme and the risks to landlords, tenants, and brokers.

Lara L. DeCaro is a partner at Leland Parachini in San Francisco. Most of her clients come from highly-regulated industries and she has translated that knowledge into a comprehensive medical cannabis practice throughout the State.
