As California and other states consider and prepare for recreational marijuana legalization, communities and local governments are seeking science-based information on marijuana’s effects on health and populations.

In 2017, PHI’s CA4Health and Dialogue4Health co-hosted a 3-part Understanding Marijuana web forum series focused on understanding the effects of marijuana on our health and how to address the long-term residual consequences of its criminalization in our communities. Over 3,000 attendees tuned in to hear attorneys, law enforcement, racial justice organizations, researchers and city officials from across the country discuss what legalization means for health and public health, and how cannabis legalization will impact and present opportunities in poor, previously incarcerated, and people of color communities.

Catch up with recordings of all 3 Understanding Marijuana web forums.
