THE ARIZONA STATE BAR HAS GIVEN PERMISSION FOR ARIZONA LAWYERS TO AID THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY
Recognizing that the passage of Proposition 203 in 2011 placed lawyers in an ethical dilemma - it is not ethical to counsel clients on how to violate the law - the Arizona State Bar issued Ethics Opinion 11-01 establishing the parameters to which all Arizona lawyers must adhere, when counseling cannabis clients.
Before passage of Arizona Proposition 203, medical marijuana was leading the way out of the dark ages of cannabis prohibition nationwide. This vacuum of law is rapidly being filled.
As decriminalization and possible rescheduling of cannabis loom on the horizon, no aspect of the law will be untouched. Whether litigation or transactional work, contracts or family law, employment or insurance law, etc., cannabis will weave itself into every thread of society. The lawyers of the Arizona Cannabis Bar Association are bravely leading the way towards smart, professional, and ethical cannabis law practice.

Contrary to what you may have been told, cannabis has been a part of human civilization since the beginning. Read, investigate, and learn the truth.
