Tulsa criminal attorney James M. Wirth appeared on Tulsa’s KJRH Channel 2 answer questions about medical marijuana on university campuses. Because universities and colleges receive federal funds, campus policies often reflect federal mandates. Under federal law, marijuana remains illegal. If campuses accommodated even the use of state-licensed medical marijuana they could risk losing federal funding.
While some universities say they will not permit use of marijuana on campus by medical marijuana card holders, it is also unlikely that federal laws would result in prosecution of users. Federal laws would more likely be applied in federally owned facilities such as national forests, national monuments or federal buildings.
