The UW Law Cannabis Law and Policy Project (CLPP) provides thought leadership on the responsible development of recreational and medical marijuana industries in Washington state and across the country. While housed in the law school, we draw on experts from across campus to deliver research and recommendations on statutes and regulations governing the commercial marijuana, cannabis and hemp industries.

CLPP faculty, staff and students deliver research and education in this fast-moving area. We have particular expertise in legal and regulatory issues confronting the emerging cannabis and hemp industries including: business law; food, drug and cosmetics law; tax, intellectual property, banking regulations, environmental and agricultural regulations; criminal law; attorney ethics rules and constitutional law.
