This course will discuss the central legal issues in the creation and growth of the state-authorized THC-cannabis and Hemp-cannabis industries in the US.  This course will explore the patchwork of licensing regimes and regulatory requirements for THC-cannabis and Hemp-cannabis businesses.  This course will also explore the tension that exists between federal and state laws and how this tension creates unique challenges in farming, manufacturing, distribution, advertising, and banking among other issues of commerce.  This course will also discuss the future of cannabis regulation from a federal, state, and local perspective.  Students will be expected to participate in discussion each week and in group projects taking place during class.  This course has no textbook and no specific prerequisites.  No technical background is required.  This course is designed for students to gain a practical understanding of how attorneys and other professionals work in these new and growing industries that are constantly in regulatory flux.
