We are proud to partner with Texas A&M School of Law to offer continuing legal education (CLE) credit for several sessions at the upcoming Texas Marijuana Policy Conference in Austin!
The Labor Day weekend event features dozens of breakout sessions, nearly 100 policy and industry experts, and several exceptional keynote speakers: Texas Senator Jose Menendez (SD 26), Marvin Washington (retired NFL player), Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg, Tom Pickens III and Adrian Moore, Ph.D (Reason Foundation).
The five accredited sessions are a joint product of the Texas A&M University School of Law and Texans for Responsible Marijuana, a Texas nonprofit association. While there are five hour-long sessions, two are running concurrently, so a maximum of four hours of CLE credit can be earned.
The following sessions are open to all conference attendees, but attorneys are especially encouraged to attend to earn up to 4 CLE credit hours on Friday, August 30:
11:15am Sessions to choose from:
The Texas Compassionate Use Program: What is Covered, Who Qualifies, and What’s Changed? (CLE Accredited)
Federal Marijuana Prohibition: The Current Landscape and A Review of Proposed Legislation. (CLE Accredited)
Marijuana Prohibition from a Law Enforcement Perspective (CLE Accredited)
Hemp in Texas: Issues in Implementation (CLE Accredited)
Legal and Scientific Issues in Increasing Medical Cannabis Research (CLE Accredited)
The laws surrounding medical marijuana and hemp cultivation in Texas, and the rest of the United States, have been changing rapidly. With an expanded Texas Compassionate Use Act for certain medical uses of cannabis and the legalization of hemp cultivation in the state, the legal landscape is in flux. The legal landscape, in turn, is embedded into broader questions of federal administrative regulations, medical research and forensic science issues, and public policies regarding public health, public safety, agriculture, and commerce.
This program will bring together legal academics, lawyers, medical researchers, forensic scientists, public policy experts, and legislative lobbyists to bring lawyers up to date on the changing patchwork of legalization in Texas.
