GO ASK ALLISON – FEDERAL PROTECTIONS & ASSET FORFEITURE

Jeff Session’s recent statements suggesting that he will continue to pursue the criminalization of marijuana sparked well-deserved controversy. Here in California, as cannabis prohibition comes to an end, state pride and support is stronger than ever — and cannabis business is booming. In this episode, Allison discusses protections under federal versus state law for California cannabis businesses. What is federally protected? Is cannabis possession, distribution or consumption still a crime? We also dip into the topic of asset forfeiture and how the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment (also known as the Rohrabacher–Blumenauer amendment) is temporarily preventing federal intervention in states that have legalized cannabis.
