Prof. Brandeis interviewed by Anchorage Press about marijuana-legalization ballot initiative

Prof. Jason Brandeis, J.D. Justice faculty, was interviewed by Scott Christiansen of the Anchorage Press for an article about the marijuana-legalization ballot initiative. The article, "Pot in Alaska politics," was posted online on June 20, 2013.

Prof. Brandeis's Alaska Law Review article (see below) was one of  the sources for the timeline in "Is that your final answer? Alaska's long strange trip with pot laws" by Scott Christensen posted on the Anchorage Press website on June 20, 2013.

Prof. Brandeis teaches courses on constitutional issues and civil liberties, and is the author of an article published in the December 2012 Alaska Law Review"The Continuing Vitality of Ravin v. State: Alaskans Still Have the Right To Possess Marijuana in the Privacy of Their Homes." Prof. Brandeis also maintains a private law practice through which, subsequent to the date of this Anchorage Press article, he provided legal representation in administrative agency proceedings for the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Alaska.
