The Cannabis Industry: Issues for Lawyers
1 Hour free Participatory MCLE Credit
Presented by Attorneys Shabnam Malek & Amanda Conley, Brand & Branch LLP
The cannabis industry has reached nearly $7 billion dollars in sales nationwide. Eight states have fully legalized cannabis for adults 21 and over. Every election cycle, we see more and more states engaging in some form of legalization or decriminalization of cannabis or medical cannabis. This growing industry has created a sea change in the legal services industry, where business attorneys are finding themselves in the middle of a quickly growing industry with needs as vast as intellectual property, corporate compliance, mergers and acquisitions, and environmental law. Much of the legal advice is given in the "gray area" - it's no always clear what is legal and what is not - so businesses and their attorneys must work together to chart a course that meets the risk tolerance of the company.
Shabnam Malek and Amanda Conley will provide an overview of the cannabis industry and talk about some of the most pressing legal issues, with a focus on the intellectual property issues. They also will talk about the founding of the National Cannabis Bar Association and what lawyers need in order to offer excellent and ethical advice to this growing industry.
