CLE = “US and International Aspects of Cannabis Laws and Legal Practice Double Feature”

Categories: Uncategorized

Please join us for a presentation by Mr. Daniel Shortt of Harris Bricken and Ms. Krista Wittman of Cascadia Intellectual Property regarding US and international aspects of Cannabis laws and legal practice.

The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill opened the door to importing and exporting hemp in the United States, at least in theory.  Cannabis remains illegal under federal law and states that have legalized cannabis sales do not even allow cannabis to cross state lines, let alone international borders.  Daniel Shortt will discuss how U.S. cannabis policy impacts the growing international cannabis market.

National laws can also greatly affect whether and how intellectual property rights for cannabis-related businesses can be obtained.  Patent attorney Krista Wittman will discuss her experience prosecuting cannabis-related patent and trademark applications in the United States as well as in select foreign jurisdictions.
