Mar 18: Lawyering in Cannabis


Due to recent proactive event restrictions outlined by The Ohio State University in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the center has elected to cancel all events through July 6. We will look to reschedule Lawyering in Cannabis for a later date. Thank you for your understanding.

When: Wednesday, March 18, 2020 | 12-1 p.m.
Where: Drinko Hall, Room 252

The cannabis industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States, expected to grow to $47.3 billion in sales by 2027. But the murky legal status of the cannabis plant creates unusual challenges, risks, and opportunities for legal professionals interested in serving this emerging industry.

Join the Drug Enforcement and Policy Center for a lunch discussion to learn how to navigate this space and what it takes to work in the cannabis industry.

Pizza will be provided.
