Land Use Implications of the

Medical Marijuana Act

Marijuana is included on Schedule I of the US Controlled Substances Act and is considered illegal under federal law. However, in 2013 the US Department of Justice issued guidance to federal prosecutors to largely abstain from action against a person who is in compliance with a state marijuana statue [Cole 2013]. Several states, including the District of Columbia, began enacting legislation legalizing marijuana on the heels of the Department of Justice memorandum. And, on April 17, 2016 the Pennsylvania Legislature enacted the Medical Marijuana Act [P.L. 84, No.16], making the Commonwealth the 25th state to legalize the substance.
