Appealing A Denied Medical Marijuana License

Businesses interested in entering the medical marijuana industry should not be surprised if their application is initially rejected. In Ohio, the number of applicants far exceeds the number of licenses available in each category. Other states that have legalized medical marijuana have similar issues. However, businesses should be aware that there is an appeals process built in by law. Despite the initial denial, they may still be able to get licensed.

At The Patton Law Firm, I use my 20 years of attorney experience in licensing and administrative law to usher businesses through the appeals process. I can prepare appeals to the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (MMCP). In the event that this appeal is unsuccessful, I can pursue additional levels of appellate hearings.

Administrative appeals hearings are dramatically different than other courtroom processes. I have built my law practice on handling these appeals for businesses and professionals, and I am now focused solely on medical marijuana businesses such as cultivators, processors, testing labs and dispensaries. I recognize that businesses that have submitted applications have already invested a great deal, and I am committed to seeing that those investments pay off and allow businesses to provide this powerful medication to medical marijuana patients.

When A License Is Taken Away

In addition to representing businesses that have received denials of their initial applications for medical marijuana licenses, I also stand up for businesses that have had their licenses revoked due to allegations of violations. I will pursue all levels of appeals to help a medical cannabis company regain licensure so it can continue doing business.
