Marijuana: Bridging the Divide Between State and Federal Law - Recording (.MP3)
2:00 PM (ET)
Although laws in many states regarding recreational and medical marijuana use are evolving, the federal government has yet to catch-up. What consequences will your clients face for marijuana use in states where marijuana is legalized? Can they still be denied benefits or deported? What tools and arguments can you use when your client has a history with marijuana use? The panelists will discuss this evolving area of law and provide practical tips for advising and advocating for clients.
