One person in particular was a cannabis farmer hoping to open a small shop on his property that sells edible cannabis Cookies, Cakes, and Pastries.
I always knew that I was going to be a lawyer. Both of my parents are lawyers. They both practice tax law. They always assumed that I would grow up and practice law as well. In fact, they believed I would eventually take over the family practice. I never thought of being anything other than a lawyer, but tax law sounded like an absolutely boring way to spend my life. While I was in college, I examined several different areas of the law that look interesting. I had an internship with a cannabis consultant. I spent a whole month working with cannabis consulting. We drove all over the valley speaking with different people about their cannabis concerns. Most of the folks had questions about opening dispensaries or cannabis-related businesses. One person in particular was a cannabis farmer hoping to open a small shop on his property that sells edible cannabis Cookies, Cakes, and Pastries. The consultant and I sat in the kitchen with the farmer and we had a slice of the most delicious blueberry pie that I have ever tasted in my life. When we were getting ready to leave after the consultation, the former presented both of us with small marijuana plants that were in pots and about 10 in tall. I thought it was a wonderful gift and I was looking forward to taking it home, but the cannabis consultant told me that we were not allowed to accept any gifts as they may look like a bribe to state or local officials. I understood, but I was disappointed I couldn’t keep the generous gift.
