Nelson Hardiman partner, Aaron Lachant, spoke last week at the MMLG Cannabis Compliance Kickoff Event about the five most important things for businesses to consider before obtaining their Los Angeles City license:

  1. Get started now if applying for a cannabis license in Los Angeles;
  2. Secure adequate capital;
  3. Improve community relationships;
  4. Develop a compelling narrative for your cannabis business; and
  5. Hire professionals that reflect positively on your business.
