The state-by-state legalization of marijuana for medical and recreational use has created a complicated legal landscape—and with it new demands for lawyers to responsibly advise cannabis clients and companies in adjacent industries. This special report features Law.com's in-depth coverage of emerging legal issues, key regulatory developments, and the lawyers who are helping to shape a new industry.
I just took my search firm’s first order within the cannabis industry, a general counsel role for a leading grower of legal marijuana. Interest in the role is high (OK, the puns are easy!), but I’ve already rejected one of my favorite candidates.
The individual to whom I refer is a corporate attorney with regulatory expertise and a stellar resume. She is highly qualified. I asked for her thoughts about marijuana. She does not care for it personally, and confessed that she has concerns about its widespread legalization. Nonetheless, she welcomes the job as a career opportunity and said she can easily separate her role as an attorney from her personal tastes and views.
