Event Description

Addressing the Use of Medical Marijuana on Campus and Avoiding the Legal Pitfalls

As more states legalize medical marijuana, colleges and universities are stuck in the complex situation of complying with both state law, which permits the use of marijuana for medical purposes, and federal law, which still prohibits it. This issue needs to be addressed with respect to both students and employees.

Gilsbach, Esq. who will review the issues that colleges and universities have to address when it comes to the use of medical marijuana on campus and the best means of avoiding potential legal pitfalls. Timothy will discuss the policies that colleges must and should have in place in this area both in terms of student and employment issues.
