Medical Marijuana and the Rules of Professional Conduct: May an Attorney Ethically Represent a Marijuana Client in a Non-Criminal Context

Thursday, June 5, 2014 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


The implementation of medical marijuana laws in 20 states and the District of Columbia, despite the federal prohibition against marijuana sales and use, has given rise to a host of legal issues facing a range of stakeholders in this emerging industry. One such issue for attorneys is whether or not they may ethically represent medical marijuana-related clients given current federal statutes. This program will analyze the relevant Massachusetts Rules of Professional Conduct in the context of such representation, and look to solutions proposed by other state Bar organizations.
