Join LACBA’s Cannabis Section as we ‘Raise the Bar Higher’ with a lively and engaging panel discussion about ethics and competency in the legal cannabis industry. The panel, composed of attorneys with years of experience representing owners and operators of legal cannabis business will discuss ethical issues for attorneys representing cannabis businesses in light of the fact that cannabis remains a federally illegal substance and in light of recent guidance from the State Bar of California that allows attorneys to practice in the field if they follow established criteria. The panel will also discuss ethical issues unique to representing hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) businesses given the continuing murky legal status of CBD and certain states’ prohibitions on some CBD products. The panel will finally address various competence issues for cannabis attorneys, ethical pitfalls that may arise during representation, and other practical guidance on responding to unique client issues for cannabis businesses.
