Legalized Recreational Marijuana: The New Wild Wild West for Commercial Activities

The Control, Regulate, and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) creates a new licensing and regulatory structure for nonmedical marijuana activities, both personal and commercial. AUMA allows for substantial local control over the regulation of commercial marijuana activities, outdoor cultivation, and public consumption. The webinar focuses on impacts that the new law will have – and already is having – on local governments and private businesses involved in commercial marijuana activities.

The presenters address the myriad of new regulations that cover a range of commercial marijuana activities, including cultivation, manufacturing, testing, distribution, transport, marketing, sales, as well as issues related to taxation, licensing marijuana retailers, and consumption of marijuana in retail establishments. Private businesses and public agencies face equally complex regulatory, compliance, and enforcement challenges in what is expected to be a confusing regulatory environment throughout the state.
