Former DEA Supervisor Becomes Advocate of Marijuana Industry As Lawyer

Steve Neavling

Patrick Moen, a 36-year-old former DEA supervisor, took quite a turn in his career path, the Atlantic reports.

Yes, Moen may have recently led a team that fought against methamphetamine and heroin dealers in Portland.

But that’s the past. Moen has become the in-house lawyer for Privateer Holdings Inc., a private equity firm that invests in websites, insurers and consultants in the industry.

“The potential social and financial returns are enormous,” Moen said of his new business. “The attitudes toward cannabis are shifting rapidly.”
