Hosted by the Washington State Bar Association, this presentation will provide attorneys with an overview of some key, current topics related to cannabis law. The presentation is designed to help lawyers identify issues during the course of representing clients in the cannabis industry.

The first session will offer an introduction to the legal framework of cannabis regulation, with particular emphasis on federal-state tension, and will delve into the intellectual property issues faced by cannabis companies.

In the second session, we will consider how cannabis considerations impact corporate transactional work, including M&A, traditional lending, and venture capital.

The final session will cover the international dimensions of cannabis law, including import and immigration restrictions. Please find the schedule below:
