Prof. Brandeis presents on complying with federal and state marijuana laws at CannaCon conference

Prof. Jason Brandeis, J.D, was a speaker at the CannaCon conference held September 10 in Anchorage. His presentation, "Compliance with State and Federal Marijuana Laws: Navigating the Legal Landscape," provided attendees with an overview of the current federal and state marijuana laws - with a focus on Alaska - and information about potential future marijuana law and policy changes.

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 presentation, and included providing legal services to the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Alaska.
