What does the new medical marijuana legislation mean for your jurisdiction?
It is important that local government attorneys understand Illinois' medical marijuana laws and regulations. Don't miss this opportunity to get the overview you need on issues relating to the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act with this one-hour live webcast! Municipal lawyers, general practitioners, health care counsel, and agriculture attorneys with all levels of practice experience will benefit from the information in this seminar, which includes: 
  • A summary of the legislation and how the marijuana industry is expected to function;
  • A description of cultivation centers and dispensaries – the two key marijuana-related businesses established by the Act;
  • Public safety considerations and policing concerns related to marijuana-related businesses;
  • The anticipated scope of zoning and land use laws permitted by the Act; and 
  • The current landscape of local laws regarding marijuana-related businesses, including specific examples of regulations proposed or enacted by local governments.
