Upcoming law lecture to explore cannabis regulation in the US

The Corporate Law Center at the University of Cincinnati College of Law will host the daylong symposium “The Regulation of Cannabis” on Friday, March 6, on the university's campus.  CLE will be available for this event.

Keynote speaker for the symposium will be Robert Mikos, professor of Law at Vanderbilt Law School. One of the country’s leading experts on federalism and drug law, Professor Mikos’s most recent scholarship analyzes the struggle among federal, state, and local governments for control of marijuana law and policy.

About the symposium

Cannabis regulation is now a hot topic. As legalized medical and recreational marijuana gains traction, cannabis-related businesses have exploded. This symposium brings cannabis law and policy into sharper focus by approaching the myriad of issues from comparative perspectives. Particular attention will be given to Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Program and its parallels to other state and federal approaches.
