If you are hoping to get started in the marijuana business but your license has been denied, it will be beneficial to you to work with our marijuana business appeals lawyers in Montana from Silverman Law Offices, PLLC. When it comes to cannabis licensing, things can become extremely complicated and if you do not understand why your license was denied, you may be so discouraged you choose not to fight it. However, before giving up, speak with an attorney to learn more about why your license was denied and what can be done to remedy the situation. 

What are common reasons a license was denied? 

There are a few reasons that your license may have been unfairly and unlawfully denied. 

  • Wrongful scoring. When receiving a score, the person who gave you the score may have done so due to bias, ignorance, or simply not to give you a good score. If you believe this is the case, your Montana marijuana business appeals lawyers can begin working on your appeal. 
  • There is a bias. If you believe there is a relationship between the state’s regulators and another applicant that has been more successful in the marijuana licensing process, that could mean that they denied your license so that another business would become more successful. 

Determining What To Do Next

If you would like to move forward with appealing your denied license, your attorney can walk you through the process that will be specific to your state. You will want to make sure you appeal within the right timeframe, understand what the issues were in the first place and either fix them or fight against them, and move forward with your appeal application. 

Is this the end of the road for my dream? 

Not necessarily. Especially if you have been working alone, without the help of an attorney, you may feel that a denied license has stopped your dreams in their tracks. This does not have to be the case, however. By understanding why your license was denied in the first place, your attorney can work to appeal this license denial. In some instances, you may need to wait for the next cycle of applications. However, your patience may pay off.
