“Oklahoma Did Medical Marijuana Like We Started Our State…Everyone Just Lined Up, the Starting Gun Was Shot Off, and People Went and Started Staking Their Claims.” – Joseph Norwood
Just months after Oklahoma voters approved State Question 788 – a ballot initiative legalizing medical marijuana – regulators had awarded more than 1,000 business licenses throughout the state. With the medical marijuana industry already booming at such an early stage, attorney Joseph Norwood was interviewed for the article below.
Norwood and his partner, Todd Maxwell, have been advising clients on their medical cannabis operations since the law was passed. Medical marijuana business consulting is one of many areas of business law that Norwood and Maxwell practice. Prior to joining Norwood Law Firm, Maxwell spent over a decade as in-house counsel for the largest construction company in Oklahoma.
