The field of marijuana-related litigation continues to expand rapidly throughout Colorado. With this burgeoning growth comes a need for accurate information on the various legal issues surrounding marijuana and the industry that is growing up around it. Touching many areas of the law, including criminal prosecution, motor vehicle accidents, taxation issues, business regulation, real estate transactions and more, marijuana-related litigation is complex. Those working in areas that are affected by marijuana – particularly those involved in legal fields – need a resource to clarify questions and provide a foundation in their work.
Understanding the medicolegal aspects of marijuana requires careful consideration of the many different components in marijuana-related criminal, civil and administrative litigation. Up-to-date information and a familiarity with new areas of marijuana-related law is a necessity. For instance, forensic marijuana analysis is a new area for many attorneys. Many legal professionals are not aware just how important it is that THC analysis be performed accurately and correctly and that the results are properly interpreted. Too often results are deemed meaningless because samples are mishandled, equipment is incorrectly calibrated, or results are incorrectly reported. The topic of THC analysis, among many others, is discussed in the book.
