Recent representative experience:
Please be advised that Cannabis is illegal under the United States Controlled Substances Act, 21 USC §§ 801-904 (the “CSA”), which, on its face, prohibits the production, possession, sale, and use of marijuana for any purpose. Under the CSA, and the “Supremacy Clause” contained in Article VI, Section 2 of the United States Constitution, federal authorities may prosecute people in Oklahoma for violating the CSA, even if their conduct complies with state law, because state law cannot override federal law. Cannabis may also be illegal under tribal law which can be prosecuted in tribal courts as well as Federal Courts in Oklahoma.
