Stanley Jutkowitz, senior counsel in Seyfarth's Corporate department, is co-presenting a Rossdale CLE seminar "Mastering Cannabis & Marijuana Regulation" on May 15, 2019. Stanley is also editor of the firm's blog, The Blunt Truth, which addresses the legal and practical implications of cannabis laws across the U.S. and their impacts on the business community.
The legalization of cannabis by states across the nation has led to a significant growth in the production and distribution of legal marijuana and an explosion of related service providers, including marketers, sellers of paraphernalia and bankers. The laws vary greatly from state to state and the sale of cannabis is still illegal under federal law. This comprehensive program on cannabis law will introduce the most relevant issues and practical solutions, including criminal, FDA, federal vs. state, investment issues, litigation, banking, money laundering, commercial, and licensing. It will also cover the changes and progress on the latest legal developments and future regulations for medical marijuana licenses and distribution. Registration includes online access to course and reference materials that serve as a helpful guide to the numerous topics and techniques discussed in the program.
