"Cannabis Law Practice: Lessons for the Legal Profession in the Twenty-First Century"

The title of this post is the title of this new paper authored by Eli Wald and available via SSRN.  Here is its abstract:

The gradual states-driven legalization of cannabis, first medicinal marijuana followed by recreational marijuana, combined with decreased enforcement of federal law, has led to the emergence and growth of the marijuana industry and with it increased demand for cannabis legal services.  This Article is the first to study cannabis law practice in the United States.  In addition to answering fundamental questions about this growing area of law practice, including who cannabis lawyers are, where they practice, and what ethical challenges they face, the Article also investigates the insights cannabis law practice reveals and the lessons it teaches about the American legal profession.
