Welcome to the 2nd issue of

Cannabis Law Journal

The quarterly digital journal brought to you by Cannabis Law Report.

First of all we would like to thank all our Editorial Board Members who have contributed their time and intellectual property to help our readers get a better idea of the state of play of the legal cannabis industry throughout the USA as well as in  selected international jurisdictions.

Since our inaugural issue of June 1 2016 so much has happened in the market, we hope that some of the following pieces written by attorneys & professional experts will help keep you up to date with ever changing developments in both the public & private sectors.

Wilson Elser’s Adam Detsky and Carlos Enrique Provencio comment on the DEA’s re-scheduling non announcement earlier in August, in their analysis for the Colorado market

Gregory J. Ryan and Timothy Nolen of  Tesser, Ryan & Rochman, LLP, New York have chosen a topic that is gaining more and more attention in the legal and national media. The ABA’s rules of professional conduct and the bind that many lawyers currently find themselves in when approached by cannabis companies to represent them.

We also refer you to the first of many articles on the subject; zoning and cannabis businesses. In this issue of CLJ Arizona based attorney and consultant Jerry Chesler takes you through some of the issues that he’s currently encountering in that state.

Do stay up to date by reading all the relevant daily legal news at our sister site Cannabis Law Report.

Also, don’t forget our  directory that allows you not just to list your business but also to publish, provide webinars and much more.

We are always looking for more Editorial Board Members so do get in touch if you’d like to be published in issue 3 of the journal.
