Class on marijuana industry planned at Edmonds Community College

Edmonds Community College plans to offer in August a one-day, eight-hour class on marijuana business license and law.

The class will take a legal look inside Washington’s emerging marijuana business industry, which includes the licensing process, contract law and federal law versus state law issues.

The class promises to explore medicinal marijuana, packaging, taxation, edibles, oils, limits on advertising and child protection and the history as to why this plant became illegal.

The class will be led by Everett attorney Merwin Moe Spencer who is the principal attorney of Spencer Palace Law Office. Spencer focuses on representing marijuana growers and processors.

In addition to marijuana law and licensing, Spencer takes on select cases dealing with civil rights, protest law, criminal law, defending termination of parental rights, juvenile and restorative justice laws.

Spencer earned his J.D. from the University of Oregon School of Law, where he was president of the Black Law Student Association, a member in Street Law, and a clerk at the U.S. Federal District Court in Oregon for the chief presiding Judge Ancer Haggerty. He also earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Rice University and studied Public Policy at Oxford University in England.

The class will be offered for one credit and will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 1 at the college.
