Law360 (September 24, 2020, 3:09 PM EDT) — A few weeks back, the Cannabis Law Institute invited me to discuss contract drafting for cannabis deals. A focal point for the panel was whether courts are willing to enforce cannabis contracts.
The last time I had really looked at that issue was early 2019, when I wrote, “Cannabis Dispute? Courts are Open.”
As the title indicates, my research and experience showed that both state and federal courts were generally open to resolving cannabis contract disputes at the time. And I assumed the trend had held. Unfortunately, it has not.
