Federal Cannabis Legalization May Be Closer Than You Think
While inconceivable just a few months ago, it is now reasonable to think that meaningful national cannabis reform during the Trump Administration is more likely than not. In this article, Wilson Elser partners Ian Stewart and Dean Rocco provide context and analysis for understanding the anticipated parameters of legalization and the obstacles that will be difficult to overcome, even with national cannabis reform. The authors caution that while federal legalization is on the horizon, it does not necessarily represent the “silver bullet” that will neatly resolve issues between conflicting state and federal laws. They also propose a path forward that they believe would best serve federal and state governments and the public at large.
