Does Law Ever Change Significantly? Think About Marijuana (and the Tort(s) Relevant to You)

Some people assume change in law is always slow. Is that really true? Not always. Consider all of the ongoing change regarding the legality of marijuana. On that topic, see a general BNA Bloomberg presentation dated November 13, 2015. For marijuana specific analysis , take a look at Doug Berman’s November 18, 2015 blog post at Marijuana Law, Policy & Reform.

The overall message? Could there be a fundamental change in the law applicable to a set of tort claims relevant to your industry? What might that change look like? How large an impact would follow? How would you cope with the change?
