The laws and policies that regulate cannabis cultivation, sale, and its uses are constantly evolving. Cannabis is still federally illegal, but the landscape is rapidly progressing towards the acceptance of cannabis for medical and recreational uses. Although still hotly debated, there is much evidence that shows the benefits of using cannabis to treat various disorders, diseases, and illnesses. Our Cannabis Laws and Policies course describes the current political landscape, federal laws vs. state laws, financial and tax implications, as well as the future of cannabis legalization.

Cannabis Laws and Policies Module 1
Federal, State, and Local Laws

For as long as cannabis has been illegal, people have been trying to legalize it. The argument is being made that cannabis consumption is far less harmful than alcohol, which is legal. In this first module, we discuss factors associated with supply, demand, and consumerism. We also define various laws at the federal, state, and local levels.

  • Consumerism of Cannabis
  • Supply and Demand
  • Consumer Safety
  • Consumer Problems
  • Regulations at Every Level

Cannabis Laws and Policies Module 2
Lobbying, Cultivation, Manufacturing, and Production

Cannabis legalization and lobbying go hand in hand. We’ll discuss groups dedicated to lobbying and advocacy. Also, in this module we’ll describe aspects of cannabis cultivation, testing, manufacturing, production and retail sales. 

  • Lobbying and Advocacy
  • Requirements for Licensure
  • Cannabis Agriculture
  • Testing Labs
  • Standards

Cannabis Laws and Policies Module 3
Banking and Financial Implications

One of the biggest issues that commercial cannabis faces is the lack of access to the U.S. banking industry. Most banks and credit institutions that receive insurance from the FDIC will not take money that is associated with cannabis. This module discusses banking and financial implications associated with owning and operating a cannabis related business.

  • Credit Crunch
  • Investment
  • Stocks and Public Companies
  • State by State
  • Nation by Nation

Cannabis Laws and Policies Module 4
Taxation and the Future of Cannabis

There’s no denying the tax ramifications of recreational and medical cannabis. What are states doing with all of their newfound income? This module discusses cannabis taxes and ramifications, as well as various tax models. Finally, we examine the future of legalizing cannabis.

  • National Taxes
  • Tax Models
  • Media
