Meeting Dates:

Meeting Time and Location: 

Webinar - Zoom

1-2pm ET


Thirty-eight states and the District of Columbia have now legalized cannabis for medical and/or adult-use. This wave of policy change has important health implications for children, especially those with medical conditions whose treatment includes the use of cannabis products and who must therefore navigate cannabis use in schools and other environments. Additionally, new research is raising concerns about the effects of exposure to cannabis advertising on children and youth, including increased underage usage and changing youth risk perception. Attend this webinar for an examination of these two youth focused policy issues that states must address as part of cannabis legalization.
