The New Mexico State Bar Association is cautioning local attorneys about representing medical marijuana cultivators and dispensaries, warning they could be violating state rules of professional conduct.

An opinion issued last week by the association’s Ethics Advisory Committee isn’t binding. But it could make some lawyers think twice about representing marijuana-touching businesses, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican. That, in turn, could hamper some MMJ businesses.

The bar association’s ethics committee took up the issue after one anonymous attorney asked whether lawyers who represent licensed marijuana businesses in the state would be in compliance with the state’s code of conduct.
