Research by Prof. Brandeis cited during Common Ground program about marijuana legalization ballot measure 2

Research by Prof. Jason Brandeis, J.D., Legal Studies faculty in the Justice Center, was cited by moderator, Steve Mac Donald, during a Common Ground program on the marijuana legalization initiative.

Mr. Mac Donald cited research in Prof. Brandeis' article, "The Continuing Vitality of Ravin v. State: Alaskans Still Have a Constitutional Right to Possess Marijuana in the Privacy of Their Homes,"  published in the December 2012 issue of the Alaska Law Review.

The article addresses the unique history and case law surrounding the Alaska Constitution's right to privacy and how it applies to private, personal marijuana use.

Prof. Brandeis teaches courses on American government, constitutional law and civil liberties, and is a frequent speaker on constitutional law and other legal issues. Prof. Brandeis also maintains a private law practice through which he provided legal representation in administrative agency proceedings for the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Alaska.
