Ethan Minkin, an attorney at firm Harris Sliwoski who advises a handful of marijuana-focused companies about cannabis regulatory issues, said he hasn’t personally seen the state levy fines or revoke a license.

“As strange as it may seem, I’ve never gotten down to that level where the state turns around and imposes sanctions,” Minkin said. “In my experience, they’ve been willing to work with the licensees.”
