Hamburg, Rubin, Mullin, Maxwell & Lupin attorney William G. Roark has been appointed co-chair of the newly formed Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Medical Marijuana and Hemp Law Committee. The Committee will follow developments in the field of medical marijuana and educate association members.

PBA President Sara Austin stated, “The Pennsylvania Department of Health’s mission for the medical marijuana program is to develop and maintain a medically-focused program to benefit patients that is consistent, competent and efficient and is a leading, innovative, research-driven program. Such a complex program, if it is to succeed, must have the assistance of informed and qualified legal counsel. That’s why the PBA created this committee.” Andrew B. Sacks of Sacks Weston Diamond LLC in Philadelphia will serve as co- chair with William Roark.
