H. Steven Vogel, a Miami-based partner in the Professional Liability group at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, authored the article "Be Careful When Counseling Marijuana Businesses," published by the Daily Business Review on April 14, 2016.

The article discuses how the Florida Board of Accountancy recently joined a small group of states in issuing guidance on whether providing accounting services to marijuana businesses violates an accountant's ethical requirements. The article states that as long as the marijuana industry remains legal in some states but illegal in others, questions regarding the ethics of the needed professional services will continue to arise.
