Andrew L. Subin, Esq.

  

Andrew Subin, JD ’92, has practiced criminal defense, with an emphasis on cannabis defense, for over 25 years. Throughout his career, he has been a vocal advocate for cannabis law reform. In the early nineties, Mr. Subin was the first attorney in Washington State to employ medical necessity as a defense to charge of growing marijuana, representing a woman who was growing on behalf of a patient with severe glaucoma.  Mr. Subin has published on the subject of civil asset forfeiture and its constitutional ramifications and argued (unsuccessfully) to the Washington Supreme Court that asset forfeiture in conjunction with criminal prosecution violates the constitutional prohibition of double jeopardy. In 2018, Mr. Subin relocated from Bellingham, Washington to Burlington, Vermont and joined Vermont Cannabis Solutions, the first cannabis business law firm in the state. Mr. Subin is currently working with individuals and businesses as they prepare for the imminent emergence of the regulated recreational cannabis market in Vermont.
