The Pennsylvania Cannabis Coalition (PCC) has collected a team of powerful
legal minds from all around the state in order to keep the Pennsylvania
medical marijuana program afloat.
Andrew Sacks of Sacks Weston Diamond is joined by Cliff Levine of Cohen & Grigsby
and William Roark of Hamburg, Rubin, Mullin, Maxwell & Lupin to bring
this legal dream team to life.
The group of attorneys will work closely with the PCC in order to challenge
any attempts to halt the state’s budding cannabis program. With
the ability to immediately respond in a legal capacity to opposition,
the PCC and the industries they assist are better suited than ever to
make the medical marijuana program work.
Andrew Blasco, the co-executive director of the Pennsylvania Cannabis Coalition,
was quoted as saying that the team of attorneys was comprised entirely
by “some of the Commonwealth’s top lawyers”. He also
noted that each one was integral in the passage of Act 16. In fact, the
legal team put together by the PCC was the same set of attorneys who managed
to bring the state’s medical marijuana program to final approval,
all while keeping the objective of upholding patient rights in focus.
Even though Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program promises to
be a profitable and well-regulated industry, there will certainly be plenty
of opposition to it in the future. The PCC’s attorney team will
stay on top of all updates, news stories, and proposed legislation to
do whatever they can to prevent the program’s derailment by dissatisfied
parties. Notably, the federal government still applies heavy pressure
on states to keep marijuana and cannabis illegal in all forms, and still
counts marijuana as a Schedule I drug despite studies that point towards
its relative safety and low addiction rate. The PCC’s team of marijuana
law attorneys will fight to protect the rights of patients suffering with
chronic diseases who rely on medical marijuana to enjoy a higher quality of life.
The Pennsylvania Cannabis Coalition was formed this year in order to review,
refine, and support
marijuana laws in the state. The PCC also has intentionally focused its efforts on policies that regulate
critical areas of the medical marijuana program, such as the actual distribution
of cannabis-based treatments to dispensaries. Thanks to the work of the
PCC, its lawyers, and other groups like the American Trade Association
for Cannabis and Hemp (ATACH), the Pennsylvania medical marijuana program is expected to be far more
effective and completed sooner than any other state in history.
