Paul Larkin's article on the implications of changing marijuana laws was featured in his testimony to the Canadian Parliament on the same subject matter. Paul had a particular focus on how, as governments are legalizing marijuana in different ways, and at different rates, there are coordination issues when citizens have freedom to travel between the jurisdictions of those governments. His full statement can be found here.

Brendan Conley's comment was selected from our 2016–17 Note & Comment competition. It focuses on the transient legal setting in which fantasy sports betting has been developing. Concurrent with its publishing, the Supreme Court made its decision in the case he follows. As expected, the Court ultimately did rule in favor of New Jersey on May 14, 2018, striking down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act in Murphy v. NCAA, 584 U.S. ___, Nos. 16-476, 16-477, 2017 WL 684747 (2018). More on Murphy can be found here.
