With recreational use of marijuana legal in nine states and the District of Columbia and medical use legal in 29 states, cannabis has emerged from the counterculture to become a mainstream industry. And where there is an industry, there is the need for lawyers to serve that industry.

I round up a number of these blogs for my column this week at Above the Law. If you’re interested, you can read it here: High Times for Cannabis Law Blogs.
