Daniel Harrington Discusses Professional Conduct after Medical Marijuana Legislation

Thursday, April 14, 2016

Daniel Harrington, member of Cozen O’Connor’s Subrogation and Recovery practice group, discusses the legal gray area many lawyers are facing after Governor Tom Wolf signed legislation authorizing the use of medical marijuana in Pennsylvania.
