Nonhemp cannabis (marijuana) is legal for cultivation, manufacture, sale and use under the medical marijuana programs of 36 states, the District of Columbia and several U.S. territories. More than one-third of those jurisdictions also permit nonmedical or adult-use. Because marijuana remains a Schedule I controlled substance under federal law, however, it cannot be sold, transported or shipped across state lines. In this 90-minute program, panelists will discuss a range of topics related to the interstate commerce ban, including licensee residency requirements adopted in many states (and associated litigation); the Dormant Commerce Clause; economic and social equity implications of closed markets; and the possibility of interstate compacts as a stopgap. Speakers will also address the ban’s impact on medical patients and considerations for licensed operators, governments and regulators.
