The New Jersey State Bar Association’s newly formed Cannabis Law Committee has issued its first newsletter.
The issue contains four articles:
- “Update on Cannabis Legislation in New Jersey,” by Joshua S. Bauchner
- “Proposed Regulations Expand Patient and Physician Access to Medical Marijuana and Expand Access to the State’s Medical Marijuana Industry to Experienced Actors,” by Rachel S. Cotrino and Marc A. Raso
- “Attorney General Gurbir Grewal Grants Prosecutors Increased and Defined Discretion in Most Minor Marijuana Possession Charges,” by Michael Hoffman
- “New Jersey Employers Not Required to Waive Drug Test for Medical Marijuana,” by Ruth A. Rauls and Gillian A. Cooper
The Cannabis Law Committee “focuses on New Jersey law and future legislation permitting the legal cultivation, manufacturing, distribution
and use of cannabis, including the intersection between these laws and the existing federal prohibition on cannabis.”
The newsletter will focus on “the legal implications of the evolving cannabis industry in New Jersey.” Future topics may include business, health, land use and
zoning, banking, employment and criminal law.
The co-chairs of the committee are Michael Schaff of Wilentz Goldman & Spitzer and Seth Tipton of Florio Perrucci Steinhardt & Cappelli LLC. There are 65 lawyers on the committee.
