States, cities and other government entities impose a patchwork of regulations upon the cannabis industry.  Such regulations range from restrictions upon where marijuana-related businesses can locate, often using zoning and proximity restrictions, to outright moratoriums preventing the growth of commercial and medicinal cannabis businesses. Geograf.io’s expertise in location analytics can help you to model, evaluate, and compare various regulatory scenarios to ensure that your jurisdiction takes the smartest approach to commercial cannabis from day one.
