OAKLAND, Calif., July 31, 2015 /Weed Wire/ — Continuing Education of the Bar (CEB), a premier provider of educational support for practicing attorneys, has developed and launched Marijuana Law Hub (mjlawhub.com), a website that specifically informs attorneys about crucial legal issues arising from state marijuana legalization and its conflicts with federal law.
The new website covers evolving medical and recreational marijuana laws in both federal and state jurisdictions and tracks marijuana legislation and ballot initiatives in all states, particularly in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, and D.C., which have already legalized recreational marijuana. It also monitors the progress of California’s legalization of marijuana for recreational use, which proponents are aiming to place on the ballot as a statewide initiative in 2016, as well as report continuing issues that arise from California’s medical marijuana laws.
MJ Law Hub actively tracks issues of national significance to help attorneys avoid emerging potholes from various ethics rules, inconsistent federal enforcement policies, business entity formation, taxation dilemmas, and court decisions that often collide with each other.
In addition, MJ Law Hub will issue periodic blog posts from leading experts in marijuana law practice and offers free CEB content from its publications and Reporters. It also provides two interactive maps of the U.S. that track legislation and ballot initiatives to legalize recreational or medical marijuana.
The site is located at mjlawhub.com. Readers will be able to connect via Twitter @mjlawhub and Facebook at fb.com/mjlawhub. Attorneys are encouraged to save the webpage to their phone home screens with a shortcut, set up their own RSS feed, or bookmark on their computer.
