- Consider negative and positive impacts of such participation and access, including concerns over Section reputation, membership enhancement or detraction, and use of proceeds from potential sponsors or from events involving cannabis law practitioners being inappropriate under both Federal and Florida law;
- Outline proposed initial scope of any formed group’s activities within the Section and correspondingly any initial limitations; and
- Report back and make recommendations to the Executive Council as to the foregoing and any related matters at the Labor Day retreat.
Study Group Members are:
