Pennsylvania is still writing, updating, and issuing regulations and legal
statutes surrounding the medical marijuana and hemp industries. This has
left lawyers throughout the state wondering what is permitted and what
is considered ethically questionable. The new Medical Marijuana and Hemp
Committee hopes to spread clarity on this topic through regular meetings
that bring some of the greatest minds of the legal scene of Pennsylvania together.
Managing Partner Andrew B. Sacks, of Sacks Weston Diamond LLC in Philadelphia,
will co-chair the Medical Marijuana and Hemp Committee with Justin Moriconi
of Moriconi Flowers Ltd in Elkins Park. The main focus of the Committee
will be to address and prepare questions that lawyers will need to eventually
submit to the Philadelphia Bar Ethics Committee regarding how an attorney
can proceed with a case involving medical marijuana or industrial hemp,
two industries surrounded in controversy and uncertain regulations. Once
a month, the Medical Marijuana and Hemp Committee will meet for extensive
discussions, brainstorming, and general networking between medical marijuana
lawyers; meeting times and locations will be determined in the weeks preceding
the actual event.
The invitation to join the Medical Marijuana and Hemp Committee is extended
to all lawyers in Pennsylvania. If you have been considering taking cases
pertaining to these developing legal areas, please attend a Committee
meeting to discover how membership can benefit you and your law firm.
