Course Description

Take an incident like when Oregon's Liquor Control Commission recalled Blue Magoo Marijuana strain after 2017 samples were found to contain state-limit-exceeding pesticide residue levels.
 
Now imagine personal injury lawyers hijacking social media, and leveraging like-minded legislators, regulators and media sources, as they toss a ten-thousand-claim grenade at Blue Magoo's growers and processors and any dispensary selling the strain. 
 
Each year defective, faulty or misused products cause serious injuries, property damage and business interruption.  Due to Marijuana's 100% federal illegality, even more is at risk for those  "touching the plant" before sale to the consumer ; i.e., anyone planting, cultivating, harvesting, processing/extracting, testing, packaging, disposing, transporting, and dispensing Cannabis.
 
With Fortune Magazine placing a $31.4 billion valuation on the global Cannabis market, it's just a question of when massive lawsuits will be filed and even the most standard claim could crash an insufficiently prepared Marijuana Related Businesses.

Learning Objectives

  • Obtain understanding of legalized marijuana industry including both plant-touching and non plant touching aspects.

  • Learn common law and statutory causes of actions that can be asserted against Marijuana Related Business including RICO and Drug Dealer Liability Act claims.

  • Obtain business practices that Marijuana Related Businesses can deploy to protect against litigation including product warranties, launching safety programs, maintaining essential records, and "performing claims triage".
