Law Review Symposium 2016-4: Panel 2 -- Criminal Law and Sentencing Reform

Panel 2: Criminal Law and Sentencing Reform Moderated by Professor Elizabeth E. Joh Classified as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, marijuana has no accepted medical use under federal legislation. While some US states choose to legalize it for medical or recreational purposes, others follow the federal model and continue to enforce criminal penalties for use or possession. This panel will explore the impact of marijuana legalization on our criminal justice system.
