American Bar Association’s Business Law Today

HSE Government Affairs attorneys, Amy J. Kellogg and Caitlin A. Anderson, recently co-authored an article, along with Meg C. Michiels of Citigroup, that discusses the interplay between state and federal laws governing cannabis in an article in American Bar Association’s Business Law Today. “A Cannabis Conflict of Law: Federal vs. State Law,” explores how the conflict of law between the narrow federal landscape and the expansion of state cannabis laws has created numerous business law complications, including its impact on the banking rules and regulations, and decisions lawyers and bankers must make without clear guidance and direction. The article also provides an overview of the questions a business lawyer should be asking, such as: “What are the ethical rules that I should be aware of, and what are the areas I need to troubleshoot for my client that I may never have contemplated would be impacted by the changing state-based marijuana laws?”
