California: Legislation To Bring Clarity And Protections For Marijuana Industry

Posted by on June 1, 2017

Update: AB 1159 passed the Assembly on 5/15

AB 1159, would bring much-needed clarity to the medical and recreational cannabis industry and extend protections for individuals and businesses in their dealings with their legal advisors 

The current conflict between federal and California law regarding the legality of cannabis creates problems for businesses that are unlike any other industry. 

The fact that cannabis is illegal under federal law – combined with the failure of the current California law to distinguish between what is illegal under federal law in its statutory definition of an illegal contract – discourages clients from pursuing legitimate claims in court. 

Furthermore, the status quo does not provide appropriate protection for attorney-client privilege.
