Preti Flaherty is proud to announce that attorneys J. Andrew Cashman and Daniel W.

Walker was recognized for his pioneering efforts to legalize marijuana sales in Maine, including his involvement in drafting the original citizen’s initiative that first expanded the state’s medical marijuana program in 2009 and his ongoing service as a member of the Maine Marijuana Advisory Commission.
