Medical Marijuana Law and Policy
Course Number: LAW 6930 Credits: 1
The implications of Florida’s marijuana laws and regulations, as well as the federal regulation and scheduling of marijuana, have widespread impacts on numerous legal practice areas. Practitioners in real estate, bankruptcy, litigation, employment, criminal, medical malpractice, intellectual property, land use, zoning, development, corporate, business, taxation and other areas must understand how state and federal marijuana regulations impact their clients. Despite the interesting subject matter that marijuana law provides, the primary goal of the course is to develop practical lawyering skills and an understanding of how marijuana regulations impact various practice areas. Additionally, the course will explore the ethical
considerations for an attorney advising a client engaged in a marijuana-related business.
