    Event Synopsis:
    The previous year has been a significant year for the marijuana industry as more states in the U.S. have legalized marijuana for medical and/or recreational use. However, despite the growing number of states that have legalized marijuana, it is classified as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act and remains illegal under federal law. In January 2018, the Department of Justice rescinded the Cole memorandum, an Obama-era directive to US attorneys ordering them to focus on prosecuting major distributors and more serious marijuana-related offenses, such as selling to minors. The revocation of the Cole memorandum effectively allows federal prosecutors to decide how to prioritize and pursue enforcement of federal marijuana laws.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help businesses in the cannabis industry understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of significant legal and regulatory issues surrounding legalized marijuana. Speakers will also provide the audience with practical strategies to minimize legal and regulatory risks related to cannabis products.

    Key topics include:
    • Legalizing marijuana – an overview of state laws and programs.
    • DOJ's federal marijuana enforcement policy – what’s changed now that the Cole memorandum has been rescinded?
    • The status of the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer amendment, which prevents the Justice Department from using its funding to keep states from implementing medical marijuana laws.
    • Federal regulatory jurisdiction issues, including EPA regulation of pesticides used on cannabis and potential FDA enforcement regarding medical claims, edibles, and packaging.
    • Other recent regulatory trends and developments impacting the cannabis industry.
    • Practical tips to help minimize litigation and enforcement risks.
