This program, taught by Stanley Jutkowitz, Senior Counsel at Seyfarth Shaw, will cover the history of federal and state laws pertaining to marijuana—from the federal Controlled Substances Act, under which the manufacture, use, possession and distribution of marijuana are regulated, to the various state laws that legalize both medical and recreational marijuana.

The course will discuss constitutional considerations, the interplay between federal and state laws relating to marijuana, and how different state marijuana laws are structured. Finally, the program will introduce the ways the federal/state interplay impacts the areas of banking, taxation, intellectual property and real estate in the marijuana industry.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Understand the history of marijuana laws in the United States and how that affects the current legislative landscape today
  2. Assess the similarities and differences among state laws on medical and recreational marijuana
  3. Identify key areas in which the marijuana industry is impacted by the interplay between state and federal law
