Announcements: First Bar-Certified CannaLaw Seminars, Oaksterdam Marijuana-Logues; AB 2650’s Do or Die Moment

Northern California’s new Cannabis Law Institute has become the first cannabis law education group to be certified by the California State Bar as a “Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) Multiple Activity Provider” and is authorized to offer official California MCLE credit for legal education activities. Only a handful of spots are left in their first 75-person seminar June 5, to be held at the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country for $420 a head. CLI co-founder and noted San Francisco medical cannabis defense attorney Omar Figueroa said another seminar is planned for Los Angeles October 30th, followed by one in San Francisco. Medical cannabis law in California is undergoing rapid transformation, Figueroa says, with new precedent being set daily. “[State Bar approval] was surprisingly easy. They’ve been fantastically cooperative. the writing is on the wall,” he says. “The fact that they issued the certification with our name I think signals a cultural change. The taboo against marijuana or even the concept is eroding quickly.” Figueroa said nationwide classes are next for CLI. See more events after the jump:
