Why focus on cannabis law?

Capitalize on a growing need

The national marijuana industry will reach $13.3 billion in 2020.[1] It is also projected to create 283,422 new jobs by the year 2020 [2], making the cannabis industry one of the most rapidly growing industries in the country. But it doesn't stop there. It is estimated that the growth of the cannabis market will continue to increase and reach $24.5 billion by 2025 – and that number is based only on states that have already legalized marijuana.[3]

What does this mean for attorneys? The opportunity to represent this industry is growing rapidly and the need for attorneys specializing in Cannabis Law is exponential.
