New Paper on Murphy v. NCAA, Commandeering, and State Marijuana Reforms
I’ve just posted a new paper analyzing Murphy v. NCAA, the Supreme Court’s 2018 decision invalidating a federal statute that barred the states from legalizing sports gambling: Murphy’s Mistake, and How to Fix it (SSRN).
I previously blogged about the case here. The new paper discusses the case and its implications for state marijuana reforms in much greater depth.
The paper has also been included as a chapter in a wonderful new book published by Brookings, Marijuana Federalism: Uncle Sam and Mary Jane (Adler, J., ed.) (Brookings 2020). The book includes contributions from a range of prominent law, economics, and policy scholars. (The link will take you to the book’s page on Amazon.)
