Mitigating the waste of months of time, energy, and money is different for each client. Moriconi Flowers can provide the type of analysis so that clients can choose their best avenue to success.

Because most jurisdictions require the applicant to have control of the real property, Moriconi Flowers can assist hedging the exposure to carrying costs associated with such control.
The cannabis industry is highly regulated. Businesses with an effective compliance strategy have a distinct advantage in this space over those that will risk fines and great expense being unprepared for regulatory changes. Not only can violations and breaches create insolvency, but even if there are no violations, the wrong strategy can be very costly for the business having to make unexpected purchases to keep up with compliance changes. Keep in mind that cannabis businesses cannot currently avail themselves of the United States Bankruptcy Code. We partner with you to help you start a compliant marijuana business and stay compliant as your business grows.
