Description

After becoming a cannabis lawyer, you need to ensure you are an ethical one. Cannabis law practice requires greater attention to the rules of professional responsibility because of rapidly changing laws, enhanced potential for conflicts of interest, and that cannabis remains a Schedule I Controlled Substance in the United States. Learn from our panelists about the issues they confronted as soon as they entered cannabis practice, and what they never expected.
