In the Books and on the Street: Regulations and the Medical Marijuana Act:
Attorneys and permitted medical marijuana operators team up to present a seminar addressing the regulations promulgated under Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act. The course will combine detailed legal analysis with real-world perspectives to give the audience an opportunity to hear what issues are being encountered daily, and the means by which attorneys can help their clients navigate the regulations to find effective solutions.
Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act: A Litigation Overview:
Even before permits were awarded under Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act, issues were already being teed up for litigation. Now, nearly three years after the first permits were awarded, some operators have found themselves mired in complex litigation often involving administrative procedures, the rules of which can look quite different than your typical courtroom. In this session you will hear directly from the attorneys litigating these issues on the front lines. The session will examine some of the most recent cases being litigated while simultaneously reviewing the detailed rules of procedure governing medical marijuana litigation before the Department of Health.
Hazy Issues: Education, Employment and Workers’ Comp:
Ever since PA’s Medical Marijuana Act was enacted, there has been little or inconsistent guidance on how the law impacts employees and employers as well as in the school setting. This session will examine both national, state and local opinions in the areas of employment, workers’ compensation and education issues. This class will review what protections PA’s Medical Marijuana Act provides or doesn’t provide in these practice areas, and why the answers may be more hazy than clear. Whether you represent an employee, employer, school or student, this class will alert you to the legal challenges in these areas, provide tips to navigate through these murky waters and assist to prepare your legal arguments.
