MCLE: Representing Clients in the Cannabis Industry

Wednesday, December 6, 2017
12:15 p.m. — 1:15 p.m.

For California attorneys, the recent legalization of recreational cannabis will mean significant numbers of clients engaged in either the production or distribution of marijuana, or who provide services to the cannabis industry like marketing, selling of paraphernalia or banking – despite the sale of cannabis still being illegal under federal law. This comprehensive introduction will cover the transactional, litigation, criminal, asset protection, and ethical issues these clients will raise.

Class covers:

  • An overview of California’s Medicinal and Adult Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA)
  • Banking concerns for the cannabis industry and potential solutions
  • The importance of local licensing
  • Issues faced by landlords and others seeking to serve the cannabis industry
  • Federal criminal laws and prosecution under the Trump Administration
