Program Number: 3120 Presenter: Dr. Sharon Meit Abrahams, Rachel K. Gillette, Esq., Jan L. Jacobowitz, Esq.

The Cannabis industry continues to grow not only increasing revenue and consumer use, but also creating issues throughout the country for lawyers advising clients. As the states continue to weave a patchwork quilt of cannabis regulations and the federal government continues to list cannabis as an illegal controlled substance, entrepreneurial clients need complex legal advice and lawyers need clear ethics advice on permissible representation of their clients. May a lawyer assist a client in establishing a dispensary? May the lawyer take an interest in a cannabis start up in lieu of fees? What are the tax implications for clients operating in multiple states? What are the possible repercussions for a lawyer using cannabis for recreational or medicinal purposes? These questions and more will inform this interesting and timely discussion.
