Many municipalities have attempted to ban or severely restrict medical marijuana collectives and cultivators through land use and zoning laws and this can have severe legal implications for landlords, tenants, and business owners.
Cities across the state of California are filing civil lawsuits against both collectives and their landlords in order to force them to shut their doors. These efforts are a serious threat to safe access for patients. Many dispensaries wish to defend these lawsuits in hopes to remain open for their patients. The Law Office of Kimberly R. Simms provides advice and counsel to both landlords and tenants to decide the best tactical approach should they be faced with this kind of lawsuit. The Law Office of Kimberly R. Simms is dedicated to protecting the rights of our clients to provide safe access to patients throughout Southern California.
