Nevada Court Sets Hearing on Pot Lawyers Question

Posted: Updated:

The Nevada Supreme Court is scheduling a public hearing in May on a state bar association request for rules to protect lawyers who advise clients on medical marijuana issues.
 
The state high court says it'll also accept written comments ahead of its May 6 hearing in Carson City.
 
The Nevada Bar Association last week cited a conflict between federal drug laws and a state medical marijuana law that takes effect April 1.
 
The state law allows for regulated distribution of medicinal marijuana.
