Fifty-six percent of general counsel and in-house counsel believe in the next couple years they will need to increase their legal resources to keep up with the cannabis market, according to a report published by ALM and Shook, Hardy & Bacon.

Many in-house counsel, according to the report, have growing concerns over cannabis-related litigation. Jean Smith Gonnell, general counsel at STWC Holdings Inc., said she is not surprised that more resources will be spent on litigation.
