Federal Law Advisement
Marijuana is a Schedule I controlled substance under the United States Controlled Substances Act, 21 USC § 801, et seq., and, therefore, the possession, cultivation and distribution thereof, or conspiring with or assisting others to do the same, is federally illegal and can result in significant criminal and civil penalties. ENGAGING IN ACTIVITIES OR BUSINESS RELATED TO MARIJUANA IS AT YOUR OWN RISK, AND THE USE OF ADHERENCE OR THE PRODUCT WILL IN NO WAY RESULT IN COMPLIANCE WITH UNITED STATES FEDERAL LAW. Adherence has made no representation to the contrary. Despite Your use of the Product, or any part thereof, or Your compliance with applicable state law and current United States federal enforcement priorities and guidelines related to marijuana, You remain subject to severe criminal and civil penalties if you choose to cultivate, distribute, possess or otherwise engage in activities related to marijuana.
