With the passage of Proposition 64 on November 8, 2016, California has joined a handful of other states to legalize the recreational use of marijuana for adults. Many believe that California will become the world’s dominant market for legal marijuana, which will no doubt lead to a tremendous amount of business opportunity and volatility. This program will feature two prominent authorities on medical and recreational-use marijuana and will provide clarity regarding the complexities of Proposition 64, the intersection of California’s new law and the federal Controlled Substances Act, the effect on the California Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act, and local municipal zoning ordinances. This is a must attend event for any California attorney who is interested in practicing in this blazing hot industry.
