YLR: The Laws Governing the Business of Cannabis

California has regulated a largely legalized marijuana market; the federal government, not so much.

Just how are businesses to operate under a system of regulation that is, to say the least, fluid and evolving.  How is a business – often a very large enterprise – to move through the myriad regulations and keep its executives out of Leavenworth?
