For a growing number of states, legalized marijuana is either a new reality or an increasingly likely prospect. Community associations need to prepare for the possibility of nuisance claims, disharmony, and general anxieties. Our panel of experts will cover:

  • The common concerns and conflicts that arise when marijuana is legalized and the importance of setting boundaries and communicating with residents about how an association may legally respond.
  • The rules, amendments, and other common remedies that associations enact to protect the common areas and promote community harmony.
  • A look at the long-term effects of legalization from communities that have been dealing with it for over a decade.
