In January 2014, the Connecticut Consumer Protection Commissioner selected our client, Advanced Grow Labs, LLC, as one of four companies to produce medical marijuana in the state of Connecticut. Connecticut is the first state to institute a medical marijuana program based on a pharmaceutical/medical model requiring strict regulation over physician certification, production facility operations, and dispensary operations supervised by licensed pharmacists. Medical marijuana will be available to seriously ill patients holding patient certification cards.
Pullman & Comley represented Advanced Grow Labs throughout the application and approval process. The applications provided detailed information about production, security, design, and training plans and processes for development of state-of-the-art facilities for growing. The application also included our client's plans to enhance the working environment of employees, disclosure of its compassionate need program, strategy for scientific research, community involvement and charitable commitments, and substance abuse resources and educational material.
