The National Cannabis Bar Association is pleased to announce a special roundtable CLE regarding the passage of California’s Medical Marijuana Regulatory and Safety Act (MMRSA).
The CLE features Khurshid Khoja, Founding Board Member and Pro Bono General Counsel for the California Cannabis Industry Association (CCIA), and also the Founder of Greenbridge Corporate Counsel, a premier law firm entirely dedicated to counseling the cannabis industry.  
As General Counsel to CCIA, Khurshid worked alongside CCIA's staff and lobbyist over two legislative sessions to shape the legislation. Khurshid's efforts were instrumental in crafting the MMRSA to meet industry concerns. He participated in numerous closed-door discussions on the draft legislation with the legislative authors' staff, legislative counsel, and various stakeholders including the California Police Chiefs Association, the League of California Cities, Rural County Representatives of California, the NAACP, the ACLU, County Agricultural Commissioners, CalEPA, and the Department of Pesticide Regulation. In the process, he provided technical input regarding pesticide regulation, license ownership, trade dress, licensing suitability criteria, and delivery, and drafted amendments to the legislation that resulted in critical revisions needed by industry.
