Speaking Engagements

Presented by the Los Angeles County Bar Association's General Real Property Subsection

Joshua Mandel will speak on a panel with a wide range of practitioners to discuss how California lawyers are facing a growing number of ethical questions about whether to represent cannabis-related clients and how to effectively do so while abiding by the California Rules of Professional Conduct.

Possessing, using, distributing, and/or selling marijuana or marijuana-based products is illegal under federal law, regardless of any state law that may decriminalize such activity under certain circumstances. Although federal enforcement policy may at times defer to states’ laws and not enforce conflicting federal laws, interested businesses and individuals should be aware that compliance with state law in no way assures compliance with federal law, and there is a risk that conflicting federal laws may be enforced in the future. No legal advice we give is intended to provide any guidance or assistance in violating federal law.
