Prof. Jason Brandeis, J.D., Legal Studies faculty in the Justice Center, was interviewed by KTUU Channel 2 News on Friday, March 18, about the impact of marijuana legalization on the state.

Prof. Brandeis noted that data on proposed locations for marijuana establishments are being updated frequently by the Alcohol & Marijuana Control Office, and that individual municipalities across the state are taking different approaches to implementing the state's marijuana regulations. Brendan Babb, Code for Anchorage, discussed the map he created showing the location of different types of marijuana establishments around the state.

Prof. Brandeis teaches courses on the American legal system, constitutional law, and civil liberties, and is a frequent speaker on constitutional law and other legal topics. Prof. Brandeis also maintains a private law practice through which he advises clients on marijuana law and policy questions.  This law practice preceded this interview, and included providing legal services to the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Alaska.
