CLEVELAND, Ohio – Listening to academics in bow ties talk about pot left me lightheaded.

I had never tried to injest pot like this before. No bong. No joint. Instead, I inhaled “vertical Federalism,” “local preemption,” “interstate commerce” and “dual regime,” whatever that is.

I ultimately came away high on, or, at least a little smarter about, the legal issues burning in the two dozen states that have legalized the medical use of marijuana and in Colorado and Washington, where adult recreational consumption is allowed.

The academics were not just blowing smoke. They are among the nation’s top experts on the legal quagmire created by state laws that legalize marijuana use and federal laws that prohibit its use.
