Lawyer at the firm Aaron Hall said: ‘It’s the first time that I know of in my lifetime where a whole new industry is opening up. If you’re considered the law firm at the centre of that industry, you’re likely to have the biggest and best clients.’ The Minnesota health commissioner has estimated that 5,000 people will be able to buy cannabis pills or oil under new legislation which is due to take effect from June next year. Likely customers include those who suffer from cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, seizures and painful terminal illnesses. Source: Star Tribune
