In his byline article, “Litigation Lessons from Other Regulated Industries” for Marijuana Venture, Associate Christopher Rosario examines potential litigation issues from the perspective of the alcohol, tobacco, and gaming industries to offer insights into what cannabis businesses can do to avoid unwanted lawsuits.
Chris urges companies to be wary of lawsuits, given the various regulations and oversight in the industry. He says, “To prepare for litigation by private parties and mitigate risk, it behooves business owners to comply strictly with regulatory measures.
