Over the past few years, the legality of marijuana—
medicinal and otherwise—has occupied the media and more
casual conversation. On the state and federal level, debate blazes
over legal, medical and policy issues. We even covered aspects of
the topic just a few years ago.
This spring, we could see there was clearly more to say on the
matter. And as we explored the issue, we could see that the
lion’s share of the dialogue rarely touched on law practice. So
to be sure others do not bogart the conversation, we bring you
two articles this month. We believe each will serve your clients—
and perhaps even your own law practice.
One examines medical marijuana in the employment context—
and offers what we’re sure will be a controversial analysis and
The other article guides you if you have ever considered representing “the cannabis client.” How can you do that properly,
given instructive cases from other states and a home-grown
Arizona ethics opinion?
