Prof. Jason Brandeis, J.D., Legal Studies faculty in the Justice Center, published an article in the recent issue of the Alaska Bar Rag, the official publication of the Alaska Bar Association. Prof. Brandeis provides an overview of the final regulations and the licensing timeline for starting a marijuana business.
He notes, "This article provides a snapshot of the current landscape of legal marijuana in Alaska. Despite the brevity, it illustrates the complexity of birthing an industry from scratch, of crafting a regulatory framework and of moving the product from a black market to a legal market."

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.
