Cannabis and hemp clients rely on Clark to provide comprehensive legal advice regarding licensing, operational issues, state and federal regulations, FDA enforcement, and various day-to-day compliance matters. In this capacity, Clark has helped clients resolve regulatory issues with the Arizona Department of Health Services, the Arizona Department of Agriculture, the Arizona Department of Public Safety, and other regulatory bodies.
