If The Graduate came out today, Michael Komorn suggests a famous bit of dialogue might go like this:
Mr. McGuire: I want to say one word to you. Just one word.
Benjamin: Yes, sir.
Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?
Benjamin: Yes, I am.
Mr. McGuire: Marijuana.
Benjamin: Exactly how do you mean?
Mr. McGuire: There’s a great future in marijuana. Think about it. Will you think about it?
In The Graduate, of course, that word was “plastics.” But Komorn, a Southfield-based attorney, sees that kind of potential today in marijuana. Komorn should know. Atkomornlaw.com, you’ll find a giant banner at the top of the page proclaiming that “Since November 2008, Komorn Law has focused on protecting and defending the rights of medical marijuana patients and caregivers.”
It stands to reason that the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act has opened a new line of legal focus and another revenue stream for lawyers. But that’s only the most obvious tip of the iceberg. Komorn likens it to a feeding frenzy.
