Marijuana Cards & Custody

Medical Marijuana Cards & Custody

Stacy was recently interviewed for her thoughts on medical marijuana cards and how it may impact child custody decisions in the Las Vegas Family Court. The first article can be found at http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2014/apr/23/legas-expert-choose-kids-or-choose-marijuana/

Stacy is concerned that those with medical marijuana cards may feel they can ignore being significantly impaired during child visitations.  Marijuana, even if legal, cannot be abused.  Similar to alcohol and prescription drugs, the parent still needs to be unimpaired doing visitation.
