  • Medicolegal Aspects of Marijuana: Colorado Edition is the hands-down indispensable textbook for attorneys, judges, legislators, and individuals involved in the business of medical and recreational cannabis. The burgeoning field of marijuana-related litigation in Colorado touches many areas of law, from criminal prosecution, to motor vehicle accidents, to real estate transactions, to business regulation, and to taxation issues. The medicolegal aspects of marijuana are complex topics because so many different components are present in marijuana-related criminal, civil, and administrative litigation. Forensic marijuana analysis is a new area for most attorneys. It is extremely important that THC analyses be preformed accurately and correctly and that the results are properly interpreted. Often, results are deemed meaningless because samples are mishandled, equipment is incorrectly calibrated, or results are incorrectly reported. The wealth of information presented in this book makes it an invaluable resource when investigating and litigating cases involving marijuana., Editor and Author, Medicolegal Aspects of Marijuana: Colorado Edition, Lawyers and Judges Publishing Company, 2015
