Cannabis Law


The potential of the hemp and medicinal cannabis industry is on the edge of being realised. There are huge prospects for medicinal cannabis, as well as thousands of possible industrial usages for hemp – such as food, building materials, plastics, biofuels, manufacturing, retail, clothing, textile, and cosmetics.

It’s a growing industry, but sadly Australia is lagging behind compared to many other countries. The hemp and medicinal cannabis industry will bring huge economic development to Australia and we’re working hard to ensure that the Hunter region is ready for when this sprouts and can take full advantage of the potential.

Navigating the legal complexities of these emerging fields can be tricky business.

With Federal and State laws to consider, it can be hard to stay abreast of the legal status of hemp and cannabis. Changes to licensing can happen overnight and businesses are legal one day and illegal the next.

Australia’s regulatory agencies have complex laws, rules, and criteria that must be followed. Meeting the criteria for licensing can be costly and complicated.

That’s why it’s important to have a lawyer who is across all legislation and current developments. In this legally volatile environment, we’ll keep you informed so that you can maintain full compliance.

At Joplin Lawyers, we have a team dedicated to hemp and medicinal cannabis industry and legislation. From seed to sale and all points in between, we can act as your legal guide through this highly-regulated space. We will provide a framework that will lead you through all federal and state information to develop and protect your business.

Our team recently went to the USA to research the lawful supply for the hemp and medicinal cannabis industry. We were also the only law firm at the recent Australian Hemp Convention and our team has featured in a number of interviews with worldwide authorities on the subject. If it’s hemp-related, we’re there. Change is required, change is what we are creating.
