Stay Ahead of the Curve

With the recent passage of the Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act and the passage of the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, it is important for entrepreneurs to have an attorney who is up-to-date on the rules and regulations. This is vital to keeping abreast of laws and statutes that can change by the day.

He has worked with industry groups and individual entrepreneurs to develop themselves as faces of an emerging industry. Local governments have given serious consideration to his regulatory proposals and guidelines.

A True Advocate

Despite the great advances we see in the acceptance of cannabis, it is still frequently regarded by many uninformed individuals as contraband. Sam Berns has represented dozens of individuals charged with cannabis-related crimes. He has a record of success in trying cases as well as obtaining dismissals and favorable settlements from the courts.

Apart from serving on the legal committee of the CA chapter of NORML, he is also a proud member of the Board of Directors of the Placer County Growers’ Association. In addition, he has taught classes and delivered several speeches on marijuana law: Sam has taught Continuing Legal Education Classes on cannabis law, and also regularly gives seminars on cannabis law for groups such as the 420 College, Clear Horizons, and the Cannabis Career Institute. In addition, media outlets including the Auburn Journal, the Roseville Press Tribune, the Placer Herald, and KVMR Radio have quoted Sam as a source for his expertise on California cannabis law.

Today, he continually crusades his advocacy by working with numerous other cannabis law reform-oriented organizations such as the following:

  • Americans for Safe Access
  • California Cannabis Industry Association (CCIA)
  • The Placer County Growers’ Association
  • Nevada County Cannabis Alliance
