CBD and Cannabis Disclaimer

Please be aware that possessing, using, distributing, and/or selling marijuana or marijuana-based products is illegal under federal law, regardless of any state law that may decriminalize or legalize such activity under certain defined circumstances.

Although federal enforcement policy may at certain times defer to states’ laws and not enforce conflicting federal laws, interested businesses and individuals should be aware that compliance with state laws in no way assures compliance with federal law, and there is a risk that conflicting federal laws may be enforced in the future, regardless of states’ laws.

No legal advice we give is intended to provide any guidance or assistance in violating any federal, state, or local law.
