A budding area: Medical marijuana attracts niche law practices
David Kotler, a partner at Cohen Kotler in Boca Raton, had just gotten out of the shower one morning in early 2014 when he heard on the news that the Florida Supreme Court had approved ballot language for a constitutional amendment legalizing medical marijuana. Thinking it could be an interesting practice area, he called his firm’s IT administrator and asked him to register a bunch of pot-related website domain names.
As Florida prepares to implement an expanded medical marijuana market recently approved by voters, he’s been inundated with cannabis-related work. Other Florida firms – both large and small – with medical marijuana niche practices also report a flood of interest from entrepreneurs looking to get a foothold in an industry that’s expected to generate more than $1 billion in sales in Florida by 2019.
