When Colorado’s Attorney General spoke with some of Columbia Law School’s brightest students earlier this month about legal marijuana in the Rocky Mountains, what did he have to share?
“The marijuana legalization movement is coming to every state in America,” Colorado Attorney General John Suthers told members of Columbia Law School’s National State Attorneys General Program on Sept. 10.
In Suthers’ talk to the group — which also included the campus chapters of the American Civil Liberties Union, American Constitution Society for Law and Policy and Federalist Society — he shared his perspective of Colorado cannabis. He touched on banking, edibles and an employer’s right to fire an employee for testing positive for marijuana.
