PHI provides national leadership and guidance on cannabis policy development, implementation and analysis, in order to ensure that implementation is just, reduces harms, and addresses youth and problem use. PHI’s model legislation has been used at the local and state levels, including recommendations such as equity licenses, automatic expungement of possession convictions, age and ID verification on delivery, a ban on health and therapeutic claims, and restrictions on products that appeal to youth. PHI researchers analyze the immediate and long-term impacts from changes in local, state, and federal marijuana policies, new use patterns and their implications post-legalization.
