Cannabis and Municipal Law: Opt-In and Opt-Out, Potential Revenues, Zoning and Permitting
This program has been cancelled
A live 90-minute CLE webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE webinar will prepare municipal counsel to stay apace with an area of the law that is evolving at light speed: cannabis law. The ongoing legalization of cannabis touches every aspect of local government. Though it is simple to say that the issues involved include permitting and zoning, the critical question is "permitting and zoning of what?" Municipalities face the unknown arising out of the sale, use, and cultivation of cannabis products in the locality.
- Legality of cannabis
- Interaction between state and local law
- Power of municipality to vary state law
- State taxation vs. local taxation
- Municipal powers
- Zoning, permitting, and fees
- Law enforcement
- Employment law issues
This panel will review these and other emerging issues:
- How cannabis is (and is not) legal from state to state
- Does a municipality have the power to vary from state law?
- What is a municipality's regulatory reach regarding cannabis?
- What types of revenues can a local government obtain from cannabis-related activities?
