Marijuana is now legal for medical and/or adult recreational use in a growing majority of U.S. states. Yet, the product remains unequivocally illegal under Federal criminal law. The unique tension between state and federal law complicates the legal representation of cannabis industry clients and raises potential ethical pitfalls for attorneys working in this booming quasi-legal industry. 

Learning objectives for this class include enabling attendees to understand:

The tension between state and federal law with respect to cannabis laws

Best practices for ethically representing cannabis clients given the tension between state and federal law

The implications of ABA Model Rule 1.2(d) and related ethical rules in states that permit cannabis commerce.
