Griffen Thorne in Bloomberg


A data breach could put a cannabis company in a precarious position if it has to alert a consumer in a state where marijuana isn’t legal, Griffen Thorne, tech and cannabis attorney at Harris Sliwoski, told Bloomberg Law. A state attorney general opposed to marijuana legalization, for example, may target out-of-state marijuana companies for partisan or personal reasons, going after them for minor privacy infractions, like not having updated privacy policies or leaking non-sensitive data, he said.
