Cannabis Law Events

Our cannabis business lawyers are often asked to speak on legal issues surrounding recreational and medical cannabis. We generally try to avoid speaking at for-profit business conferences, “expos,” and exhibitions as so many of those are fonts of misinformation and hucksterism. We simply have no desire to share the stage with overzealous newbies (who oftentimes have “paid to play”), pawning themselves off as experts while propagating misinformation. We see these sort of events as at least potentially counterproductive.

On the flip side, we view it as our obligation to speak before legitimate groups (mostly not for profits) that are seeking either to gain or to convey a better understanding of present and future cannabis laws and to engender real discussions, as opposed to “selling opportunities.” Towards that end, we will have at least one lawyer speaking at the following events in October, and we unequivocally urge our readers to attend:

  • October 15.  Emerging Frontier of Marijuana Law, at the University of Washington School of Law in Seattle, William H. Gates Hall, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

  1. I see above an October conference @ U of CA on “Harmonizing MJ Lagalization with Environmental Land Use and other Regulations. Is a good place to ask the question,”Considering eastern WA history of repeatedly being dosed with ionizing radiation from Hanford’s nuclear weapons production and it’s releases of I-131, Cs-137, Am -241, Sr-90, U-235, Pu239, and many more isotopes, dose reconstruction studies, minutes of testimonies of folks from around Hanford in the Hanford Health Effects Subcommittee, shouldn’t all smokeable cannabis, cannabis edibles, topical ointments, and extractions be tested for alpha, beta, and gamma radiation? I took care of probably hundreds of Hanford downwinders, working as a RN at Good Samaritan Hospital in Portland, OR and it turned me into a nuclear war resisting nurse. Safety First! Growers pay for a test to find out about the safety, or pay later for lawsuits for callous disregard. Justice will win out just look at fines and sanctions against the tobacco industry. Cannabis?Hemp is being used at Chernobyl, in phytoremediation, to take the radiation out of the soil by drawing it up into the plant.
