Press Release

Denver, CO – Despite being illegal under federal law nationwide, there is rapid growth of marijuana businesses in states like Colorado, Washington, and Oregon. With varying degrees of marijuana licensing at the state level, isn’t there a conflict between federal and state laws? Where does that leave growers and sellers criminally?

What’s even more confusing is that the marijuana industry is attracting attorneys who help clients navigate criminal codes and regulatory bodies in what is still a crime under federal law. Does that mean these lawyers are breaking the law and the oaths they swore to their respective state bars? If you’ve ever wondered about these issues or are interested in entering the marijuana industry, you should attend Above The Law’s Marijuana Law Reception on June 16th at 6:30pm MST.

Moderated by Above The Law editor Staci Zaretsky and hosted at Legal Talk Network headquarters in Denver, Colorado, this Q&A event will feature experts like Hilary Bricken from Harris Moure’s Canna Law Group, Tom Downey from Ireland Stapleton, Professor Sam Kamin from University of Denver Sturm College of Law, and Brian Ruden who owns Starbuds, Tree of Wellness, and Altermeds.
