As more and more states begin to ease restrictions on the use and possession of marijuana and to enact medical marijuana statutes, it is important to understand that, for now, non-medical cannabis use and possession is still illegal in in the vast majority of states and under Federal law. Join attorneys Rochelle Berliner and Shelley Albert as they share their extensive knowledge of these intricate—and conflicting—marijuana laws.


Learning Objectives:

I.     Identify marijuana sale and possession laws 

II.    Discuss DWI laws in connection with marijuana

III.   Understand collateral consequences of a marijuana conviction in connection with, among other things, professional licensing, education and immigration 

IV.   Compare medical marijuana laws

V.    Recognize how state laws are affected by federal law

VI.   Review practice tips on how to defend your client from a marijuana charge
