Alma L. Saravia, a member of Flaster Greenberg’s Cannabis Law Practice, was named to the Insider NJ 100 Cannabis Power List for 2021, which highlights the top 100 influential voices in the cannabis debate in New Jersey. The special supplement in the July 2021 issue of Insider NJ described Flaster Greenberg as a “politically-wired, Cherry Hill-based law firm” and Saravia as “one of New Jersey’s foremost legal experts on the expungement process. When she’s not warning lawmakers to better prioritize expungements, Ms. Saravia is helping clients (and reporters) navigate New Jersey’s byzantine regulatory culture.”
Working alongside legislators and government officials, Saravia was actively involved in shaping several aspects of New Jersey’s new adult-use cannabis law. Since the legalization of medical marijuana under New Jersey’s Compassionate Use Medical Marijuana Act in 2010, she has been a guiding force for physicians and their rights under the law. She provides regulatory guidance for alternative treatment centers and adult-use applicants in the cannabusiness industry. Her extensive experience and relationships with the members of the New Jersey Legislature and governmental agencies have proven beneficial to her practice, and Saravia is considered a go-to legal source to members of the media for commentary on the New Jersey medical marijuana and adult-use cannabis laws.
