SEATTLE — Washington State is slated to get its very own medical cannabis industry forum to discuss recent legal and political issues.
Attorney and spokesperson for Canna Law Group, Hilary Bricken tells THCbiz that "Pot Talk" lets members of the community engage with four leading professionals who specialize in the various legal and financial aspects of the medical marijuana industry in Washington state. The forum is scheduled for February 23 at the Seattle Convention Center and will start at 1:30 p.m and last until 3:30 p.m.
"We're hosting our premier POT TALK to provide accurate information to those in the MMJ industry who want to operate in compliance with State law," Attorney Hilary Bricken tells THCbiz.
Hilary Bricken is the only attorney in Washington who focuses her practice on the business law aspects of medical cannabis. She will be speaking on how recent legal events and proposed legislation will impact your business.
Covering the criminal law aspects of the state's medicinal cannabis law is Aaron Pelley, a well-known Seattle area criminal attorney. Rob Braach is a CPA out of Montana who is an experienced seasoned preparer for medical cannabis taxes. Rob will address federal and state tax issues faced by dispensaries and growers. Speaking about the state of medical marijuana in politics in Washington is Roger Goodman, a state representative who is a current candidate for Congress.
The general public is encouraged to bring all their questions, concerns, and comments to the forum. The panelists aim to help you with your concerns about your medical marijuana business through their comments, experiences, and suggestions.
Canna Law Group brings together an experienced team of business lawyers and civil litigators focused on the complicated language of amended RCW 69.51A, “Medical Cannabis.” Since there are a lot of questions and possible confusion regarding regulations, business and criminal law issues, tax liabilities and other important issues, the Canna Law Group organized this forum to bring an arsenal of advice to those involved or interested the MMJ industry.
