Cannabis and Environmental Regulation:
A General Overview of Top Concerns
Presented by Danielle Hazeltine, Clark Hill

Cannabis cultivation and processing are rapidly-growing industries, as hemp and both recreational and medical marijuana products are being legalized across the country. With this rapid growth and legalization, however, comes added regulatory scrutiny, including in the environmental and sustainability spaces. Cannabis businesses that are ill-prepared for these regulatory requirements risk facing litigation, enforcement actions, fines or penalties, and negative publicity, while those taking a proactive approach to compliance may find opportunities to mitigate and even monetize those risks.


Danielle M. Hazeltine is an environmental attorney with Clark Hill Law Firm. She assists clients with all aspects of permitting and compliance under the Clean Air Act (CAA), waste, and water issues, and strives to help industrial facilities to achieve compliance with environmental regulations at a reasonable cost while maintaining optimum operational flexibility.

Before working in the private sector, Danielle worked for the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ), where she drafted CAA State Implementation Plans (SIPs) and agency guidance documents. Notably, she worked with agricultural stakeholders to develop agricultural and animal operations best management practices rules to help reduce particulate matter emissions in nonattainment areas throughout the State.
