Bar Association of San Francisco Barristers Club Sections

Cannabis, Alcohol, and Regulated Industries Section

Section members organize regular CLE programs and networking events highlighting legal practice within the cannabis and alcohol industries, as well as those of other substances that, when ingested in the body, have a physiological effect.

Our aim is to educate and bring a community of regulated substance practitioners together to exchange information and ideas, and to provide guidance to attorneys new to these emerging fields.  Events cover everything from general principles and norms to niche industry practice, and subjects often overlap with other areas of legal practice (e.g. intellectual property, labor and employment, tax, business, litigation and ethics).
