Marijuana and Public Health: Opportunities for Equitable Policies and Approaches, Dialogue4Health, Dec 2017

Presenters: Leslie Valencia Gregory Minor Jim Keddy

Description: Marijuana has been used for both medicinal and recreational purposes for a long time. Nevertheless, a full understanding of the effects of this plant on our health, and how to address the long-term residual consequences of its criminalization in our communities can remain elusive. As preparations and discussions are unfolding across California and other states around legalized adult use increasing an understanding of marijuana can assist with achieving desirable and equitable outcomes. Please join CA4Health for a Web Forum series co-hosted by Dialogue4Health to learn more about Marijuana and Our Health; Marijuana and Communities; and Marijuana and Public Health. This session will provide a sense of the importance of emphasizing equity in our policymaking around marijuana, and some examples of what/how this can be done, and the role that Public Health could/should play.
