This presentation will explore the ethical issues arising as a result of state legalization of cannabis for medical and recreational purposes and the resulting impact on lawyers seeking to advise clients on any aspect of the cannabis industry. The tension between federal and state law, the state bars' response to the tension, and the current state of the cannabis industry in Florida will be explored. Additionally, issues regarding an attorney’s ability to invest in the industry and the potential impact on an attorney who obtains a prescription will be discussed.
