Trying To Sell A Business? You Need To Look At It The Way A Buyer Would

If you’ve ever been involved in the purchase of a business, you’re likely aware of the due diligence process.

The acquisition of a business involves a number of steps but, particularly for the buyer, it’s during the due diligence phase when the transaction comes into focus. This step typically begins after an initial letter of intent has been signed. At this point, both sides have shown commitment to putting a deal together. Now the buyer has a chance to look under the hood to see how well the business engine really runs.

The due diligence process is the way in which the buyer identifies issues to address after purchase and concerns to factor into the sale documentation.

But although state lawmakers made dispensing the drug to those patients legal, federal law still bans marijuana. That's led to some big financial challenges for Minnesota's fledgling cannabis industry.

Medical Marijuana Complaint Against Employer Reveals Legal Gray Area In Mass. Pot Law

There’s a conflict between state and federal law when it comes to marijuana. Back in 2012, Massachusetts citizens overwhelmingly approved a medical marijuana law, and the state’s first dispensary is expected to open in Salem later this month.

The law allows people with a doctor’s prescription to legally buy and consume the weed — or does it?

Consider the case of Cristina Barbuto, a 34-year-old woman from Brewster. She has a doctor’s certificate for marijuana to help treat her digestive disorders, including Crohn’s disease. But last year, she accepted a new marketing job, and on her first day of work, she failed a drug test and was fired.
