Between Two Extremes: The Path Forward in Marijuana Policy

August 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Today’s marijuana is much more potent than in the past — with pot edibles, candies, cookies, ice creams, and waxes being up to 99% THC. In comparison, marijuana in the Woodstock era contained 5% THC. William Jones will take participants through the latest facts and figures on what is really happening in legalized states and the overall goal of the legalization movement.

 

Objectives:

• Examine the impact of marijuana on communities — ranging from drugged driving and youth marijuana use to law enforcement concerns and public health costs.

• Discuss the facts the media have ignored as the United States rushes to legalize marijuana.

• Explore the complex concerns surrounding social justice issues.
