To date, 17 states and the District of Columbia have passed laws decriminalizing the use of medical marijuana and a number of other states are considering such measures. Each of these jurisdictions has taken a different legislative and regulatory approach to decriminalization, resulting in a patchwork of laws across the nation. On April 13, 2012, the University of Maryland Schools of Law and Pharmacy are co-sponsoring a one-day conference to discuss the legal and policy issues that confront states that have passed medical marijuana decriminalization statutes, including:
During the final session of the conference, conference organizers will host an interactive discussion in which conference participants will discuss what the ideal elements of a model medical marijuana decriminalization law might include.
The goal of the conference is to bring together state regulators, public health officials, legal academics, health scientists and academics, legislators and others to discuss lessons learned from efforts to decriminalize medical marijuana over the past several years and recommendations for future legislative efforts in this area.
