Cannabis Law Industry


After almost 10 years of representing legal cannabis businesses in Massachusetts, Prince Lobel is pleased to offer legal cannabis advice to clients in White Plains, New York. We proudly represented the first legal cannabis business to open in Boston, as well as the first business to change from a non-profit entity, and the first marijuana dispensary to be licensed for Adult Use. Our cannabis lawyers were the first to file a change of control application with the Cannabis Control Commission, and represented the purchasers in the two largest legal cannabis transactions in Massachusetts in 2019.

New York State is projected to become the largest legal cannabis market in the United States, so Prince Lobel added an impressive group of cannabis attorneys in White Plains, New York in July 2022:  James K.
