Marijuana Business License
At this moment Federal regulations label cannabis as a Schedule I drug, which means not only is it against the law, it can be used to enhance charges on people that get caught violating other laws that may tie the product. For example, transporting marijuana from one to state to the other is still considered a felony if you do not have the proper licenses. Whether both states have legalized it is still punishable by law if you do not have the proper licenses to transport. Whether it is the actual flower, edible, etc. by law you have to have the proper licenses. Not any more!
