On February 16, at the American Bar Association (ABA) midyear meeting, the ABA House of Delegates adopted Resolution 103B, co-authored by Steven Cash, urging federal legislation to protect lawyers from criminal liability for providing services to state-legalized marijuana businesses. Cash, who presented before the House of Delegates at the meeting, pointed out that "33 states have legalized cannabis, but attorneys could still be charged with conspiracy and aiding and abetting under federal law." He further commented, "[t]hat's an untenable position." According to the ABA, the resolution passed "overwhelmingly."
