Andrew Sacks, Managing Partner of Sacks Weston Diamond LLC and head of
our firm’s cannabis and hemp department, has dedicated a large focus
of his practice on medical marijuana and industrial hemp. His efforts
include not only protecting the rights and interests of our clients as
they navigate Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana industry, but also
active involvement in the formation, regulation, and revision of policies
regarding marijuana and the law. Among his many professional affiliations
is his role as an Editorial Board Member of the Cannabis Law Report.
The Cannabis Law Report is a global publication that provides critical
information and updates about marijuana, evolving legislation, and ongoing
research. It provides readers, patients, and professionals with the information
they need to protect their rights and make their voices heard. It also
acts as a trusted resource for fellow lawyers, marijuana advocates, and
members immersed in the medical marijuana industry to find relevant news
on issues that pertain to their areas of focus.
As an Editorial Board Member, Mr. Sacks plays an active role in cultivating
content for the Cannabis Law Report, which publishes a periodical Cannabis
Law Report. In particular, he serves as an editorial board member for
the state of Pennsylvania (the report has editorial board members hailing
from states and countries across the world). This allows him to utilize
his insight on current topics facing the medical marijuana industry in
Pennsylvania and share news that can help the local legal, business, and
patient communities become better informed.
With medical cannabis regulatory issues and laws constantly in flux, disseminating
the right type of information to the public is also crucial to supporting
new initiatives that expand access to medical marijuana and the rights
of all those involved in the industry. When people who are passionate
about this area of law are kept informed about ongoing initiatives and
efforts, they can take an active role in supporting them, raising awareness,
and ultimately, ensuring they pass.
Andrew Sacks’ involvement with the Cannabis Law Report is just one of many active
roles he takes in the medical marijuana industry. Considered one of the
leading legal professionals in the state for these matters, he has been
selected by the American Trade Association for Cannabis and Hemp (ATACH)
as the only attorney to serve on its State Level Coalition, where he works
to promote fair laws and improve the quality of legal representation for
those involved in the marijuana and hemp industries. He was also actively
involved in founding the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Medical
Marijuana and Hemp Law Committee. He currently serves as co-chair of the
committee and the Pennsylvania Bar Association Business Law Section’s
Medical Marijuana and Hemp Committee. Mr. Sacks continues to speak on
these issues, and has been a featured lecturer at seminars organized by
the Marijuana Policy Project, the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and the
Pennsylvania Canna-Business Center.
This level of dedication to moving marijuana regulations forward speaks
volumes not only about the depth of Mr. Sacks’ experience and knowledge
in this area, but also his genuine passion. It is this passion that has
enabled our firm to continually provide the counsel and representation
our clients need.
