Journal Online

Hemp and marijuana smell exactly the same, which is causing some confusion and hardship when it comes to detecting the illegal substance using "plain smell." The December Tennessee Bar Journal explains. This issue also has an excellent primer for new lawyers (and any who may have let this slip) on how to keep your law license up to date and in good standing. Columns include a look at a recent visit to the U.S. Supreme Court, perpetuities, plus a book review. And in this issue we say a sad goodbye to long-time columnist Katie Edge, who is retiring and moving to Texas for a more fun gig as grandmother to triplets.
