    Product Description

    The Commonwealth of Massachusetts became, on November 8, 2016, the ninth state to legalize adult-use marijuana. Since then, the newly-anointed Cannabis Control Commission has engaged in a flurry of activity—enacting new regulations spanning from traditional retail sales to delivery and social consumption models; grappling with complex public health issues; identifying the appropriate balance between municipal and state control; and employing different strategies to promote equity in the cannabis industry.

    The implications of the law and regulations have been far reaching, impacting practitioners in diverse legal fields as they navigate the permitting and licensing of this robust new industry. Whether operating in the public or private sector, attorneys are challenged daily to interpret complex multidisciplinary legal issues—while keeping abreast of the rapidly changing legal landscape.

    Learn the fundamentals of cannabis law with firsthand guidance from a Cannabis Control Commissioner and Cannabis Advisory Board appointee, members of the Question 4 drafting committee, and a panel of industry experts who provide multidisciplinary insight into the issues underlying cannabis operations and the implementation of the new regulatory framework.

    As the Cannabis industry expands, all lawyers need to have a basic understanding of the business landscape, regulations, and evolving legal issues impacting their practice.
