Cannabis Law Now: Criminal Investigations


In January 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded the Cole Memorandum, a 2013 memorandum issued by Deputy Attorney General James Cole under the Obama administration. The Cole Memo outlined the DOJ’s enforcement priorities relative to marijuana in light of state legalization, and it applied to “all federal enforcement activity, including civil enforcement and criminal investigations and prosecutions, concerning marijuana in all states.”

Join Husch Blackwell attorneys for a deeper look at the effect of the Cole Memo rescission on federal enforcement efforts, both civil and criminal, and for analysis of what factors will drive federal enforcement moving forward. This program is geared toward cannabis business owners and will provide practical compliance tips.
