Deadline to Register: Thursday, March 19 

Are you canna-curious? Have you seen CBD for sale in your local gas station and wondered, “What exactly is that?” 

Jason Tarasek of Minnesota Cannabis Law will educate you on all things cannabis during his primer for non-cannabis attorneys. 

Jason’s presentation will focus upon our country’s fraught relationship with “cannabis sativa,” which is the plant species that we commonly refer to as hemp or marijuana. You will learn about laws applicable to industrial hemp, CBD, medical marijuana and adult-use marijuana in Minnesota.

Jason will also share a case study related to his client, a Minnesota hemp farmer, who was criminally charged after he processed legal hemp into hemp wax that allegedly exceeded the legal limit for THC. Jason successfully sued the Minnesota Department of Agriculture in federal court to preclude the state from destroying his crop.

*This CLE will only be offered via remote participation.
