Back in 2015 when CLR first started publishing on cannabis lawyers there were many sniggers, phones being hung up on us and even from time to time, downright anger at the suggestion that a lawyer could run a cannabis parctice outside a criminal practice.

Now it’s 2020 and nobody bats an eyelid at the mention of a cannabis lawyer, law firm or practice.

The next frontier is  “Psychedelic” law firms and attorneys

Not only are they coming, they are already here and we thank Psychedelic Invest for this , the first mini-listing, we are aware of

Yes they beat us to it and we thank them and Borden Ladner Gervais for highlighting the fact for CLR.

Just like Psychedelic Invest we want to hear from you if your legal or, for that matter, CPA practice is working in the new psychedelics market.

It is interesting to see bigger players like BLG and Aird & Bellis not being shy about the work they are doing and we congratulate them for doing so.

We are a fifth of the way into the 21st century and it’s time for us all to realise that these are serious areas of concern and the sooner we have the best minds working on shaping both legislation and companies the better a market and market culture we will have.

It’d be nice to think that we don’t have to go through some of the less savoury aspects of the developing Cannabis / CBD / Hemp sectors again as this sector comes into being.

REFERENCE OUR LEAD IMAGE: The original word used in English was indeed the Spanish word for the fruit, “aguacate.” However, since the Spanish word in the 16th century for “lawyer” was “avocado” (now it’s “abogado”), English speakers got the words mixed up and started saying “avocado” instead of “aguacate” (I wonder if these were the same fools who mistook “Royal Prince of Castile” for “Elephant and Castle”?). The kicker is that the Spanish word “aguacate” comes from the Aztec Náhuatl word “ahuacatl,” which means “testicle.”
