Law Library Book of the Month:
Marijuana Law in a Nutshell
This book, part of the Nutshell series from West Academic Publishing, is a succinct overview of Marijuana law, both current and historical. The volume discusses in surprising detail the legal history and public policy issues relevant to marijuana law.
This little book provides comprehensive coverage of the evolution of Federal laws governing marijuana along with a synopsis of international, state, and local laws dealing with marijuana litigation. A discussion of the practical issues associated with the current trend of marijuana legalization includes an overview of banking law problems, employment issues, taxation, and impaired driving controversies. Arguments for and against medical and recreational legalization are provided, along with a chapter on how foreign laws approach this subject. This compact title contains an outstanding, in-depth index that either a student or attorney can turn to for reliable guidance.
We highly recommend Marijuana Law in a Nutshell to anyone wanting to learn more about this exciting new emerging law topic.
