Maine Cannabis Regulatory Compliance
Compliance is essential in the cannabis marketplaces. Maine requires strict compliance in order to obtain and maintain a license to cultivate, manufacture, process and distribute cannabis in the medical and adult use cannabis programs.
Maine created the Office of Marijuana Policy, which oversees and enforces the medical and adult use cannabis programs in the State of Maine. In addition, municipalities in Maine can prohibit, limit and/or approve most cannabis related activities within their borders.
At Caseiro Burke, we have been working with cannabis clients in both the medical and adult use programs on ensuring they remain in compliance with both the state laws and municipal laws. Our services include:
Cannabis Compliance Monitoring.
Caseiro Burke works with Maine cannabis owners, cannabis investors, and Maine cannabis management teams on monitoring changes to the medical and adult use statutes, administrative rules and municipals rules. We provide routine updates on any changes that may impact our clients and work with our clients on implementing the necessary changes to ensure they remain in compliance with all medical and adult use cannabis laws and rules in the State of Maine and federal law.
Cannabis Compliance Audits.
Failure to comply with the cannabis laws and rules in Maine and/or in a municipality could result in fines, license suspension, license revocation, state and/or federal criminal prosecution. Caseiro Burke works with medical and adult use cannabis applicants and licensees to review their cannabis business operations to ensure strict compliance with the laws and rules set forth by Maine's Office of Marijuana Policy and the municipality that the cannabis business operates in. If problems arise from the audit, Caseiro Burke will work with the cannabis business to implement the necessary changes to ensure the cannabis business is in compliance with the rules set forth by Maine's Office of Marijuana Policy and the municipality that the cannabis business operates in.
Cannabis Compliance Training.
Most compliance issues are the result of poor training or no training at all. Caseiro Burke provides its cannabis clients training on a variety of cannabis compliance related topics, including but not limited to, mandatory reporting requirements, packaging and labeling standards for both the medical and adult use cannabis programs in Maine, and develop best practices for record keeping.
