Cannabis law encompasses all the legislation that governs the growing, sale, consumption, and civil duties surrounding the cannabis plant.
This section of WoahStork Learn will address all the wide ranging ways in which local, state, and federal governments have created laws that govern cannabis. There is still a great deal of debate surrounding cannabis law, so be sure to bookmark this page and revisit regularly to stay in front of the ever-changing legislative landscape.
While most articles will cover the laws around the medical and recreational sale of cannabis (through dispensaries), we are sure to not forget the rules surrounding growing cannabis. The questions in that arena can actually get quite complex. For example, how much can you grow per square foot? Can you patent a strain of cannabis? Is the grower required to test for pesticides?
Also, of particular emphasis is how people should act while under the influence of cannabis. For instance, is it okay to drive high? Can you smoke in public? Can your employer fire you for smoking weed?
