PBA Medical Marijuana and Hemp Law Committee

This email is being sent on behalf of the leadership of the PBA Medical Marijuana and Hemp Law Committee:

Dear Medical Marijuana & Hemp Law Committee Members,

Welcome! We are excited to launch this new committee and look forward to working with you as we delve into the many areas affected by developments in the field of medical-cannabis and hemp law. We expect to be very busy and welcome your input and participation as we move forward.

Here are a few things we are working on:

  1. We will send a survey to all members in March asking for your background in the field and for your input into the subcommittees available. Subcommittees will report back to the full committee on a regular basis regarding their work.
  1. We are planning our first full committee meeting to be held on Tuesday, April 18th, at the PA Bar Institute facility in Philadelphia (Wanamaker Bldg., 10th FL, Ste. 1010 Juniper Street Entrance Philadelphia PA 19107). The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. and end by noon. We will provide a light luncheon for those who can attend the meeting in person. If you cannot make the trip to Philadelphia, we invite you to participate via conference call. Also, for those of you who might be interested, following our committee meeting, PBI is holding a CLE program titled, “PA’s Evolving Medical Marijuana Industry.” The CLE program begins at noon and will be held at the PBI facility in Philadelphia.

Please respond to our PBA staff liaison, Ursula Marks, with your attendance plans and indicate whether you will be there in person or participate via conference call. Email Ursula at Ursula.marks@pabar.org by April 11th.

  1. We have created a listserv for the committee in order to facilitate easy conversation and the sharing of ideas. To access the listserv, you simply type the following address into the “TO” line of your email: MMHLAW@LIST.PABAR.ORG. Your message will then be sent to all members of the committee with active email addresses. All committee members are subscribed automatically to the listserv.

Thank you for your interest in this committee and for your willingness to participate in our work. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us. We look forward to working with you and hope to see you in April!
