Due to the federal prohibition on marijuana pursuant to the Controlled Substances Act, marijuana business operators (cultivators, processors, and retailers), their landlords and ancillary businesses that provide goods and services to the marijuana industry have been unable, thus far, to take advantage of federal bankruptcy laws. This course will cover the bankruptcy courts’ basis for dismissing bankruptcy cases filed by marijuana business operators and ancillary businesses. An overview of various marijuana business bankruptcy cases that have been filed will be discussed by case type (chapter 11, 7, and 13) and by type of marijuana business filing the case (grower/ cultivator v. ancillary business). In addition, potential solutions/ planning tips will be discussed that may enable a business to remain in bankruptcy. State law options will also be covered.
