Question 1 0 / 40 points What two kinds of jurisdiction are BOTH necessary for a state court to have jurisdiction over a case? Describe each briefly in your own words. Demonstrate your understanding by providing specific examples (either actual or hypothetical). Question 2 0 / 20 points Karen an Overland Park KS resident suffers from multiple sclerosis and experiences significant pain and discomfort at times. To help treat her Karen’s doctor has prescribed medical marijuana. In an effort to save money Karen now grows marijuana in her basement sometimes asking her 21-year-old nephew Mike to help her with the production. As a thank you for his help Karen lets Mike take some of the marijuana to share with his friends. Assume for the purposes of this scenario that the Kansas legislature has recently passed a law legalizing the use of marijuana for both medicinal and recreational purposes. Recreational marijuana use continues to be illegal in Missouri and other surrounding states. At the federal level the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) makes it illegal to manufacture distribute dispense or possess with the intent to manufacture distribute or dispense controlled substances including marijuana. The U.S. federal government has legally discovered Karen and Mike’s activities and plans to prosecute both of them under the CSA. What will be Karen’s and Mike’s best defense? What rule of law will impact the court’s decision? Will Karen or Mike or both be found guilty or innocent? Your goal should be to write approximately 2-3 paragraphs.
