Entitled,Why Fox Rothschild Is Still Banking on its Cannabis Practice this one is worth a read ..
Here’s the introduction…
Shortly before the results from the November presidential election arrived, the management at Fox Rothschild decided it was time to double down and officially launch a Cannabis Law practice group with recognition on the web site, a blog and all the standard marketing.
And then, against many pollsters’ predictions, Donald Trump was elected, and soon thereafter picked Sen. Jeff Session, R-Alabama, as his attorney general — a man who last April remarked that “good people don’t smoke marijuana,” during a tirade against the legalization that’s been occurring in states throughout the country.
With Sessions now at the helm of the U.S. Department of Justice, where does that leave law firms like Fox Rothschild that doubled down on cannabis law?
“I think people are still pretty optimistic,” said Joshua Horn, co-head of Fox Rothschild’s Cannabis Law group, and a contributor to the firm’s ‘In the Weeds‘ blog.
“Look, I’ve been a trial lawyer for 20-something years,” he said. “There’s a certain grind — I had just finished a trial and you have to listen to what your wife, or partner, suggests.”
