Larry Cote quoted in article “Cannabis Quandary for Firms”The National Law Journal 08/11/14
Following is an excerpt:
At the Washington office of Milwaukee-based Quarles & Brady, office managing partner Larry Cote said he has talked about the marijuana industry with his colleagues. Some are former U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration attorneys, and the firm advises pharmaceutical companies on the regulations of restricted drugs.
"Like anyone else, we get inquiries periodically on various issues related to marijuana," Cote, himself a former DEA counsel, said. But he and his partners are in agreement: Their relationship with the DEA is too valuable to antagonize.
