Discussion on Impacts of Marijuana Commercialization

Student Center Noon

We invite people with diverse opinions and perspectives on the subject of legalized recreational marijuana use in New York State to join us for a conversation with Ben Cort about the public health, treatment, employment, and policy implications of legalized recreational use in New York State. Mr. Cort is a nationally recognized speaker on the topic and will bring his experiences in Colorado to the conversation. In New York, the Governor's Executive Budget includes plans for legalizing the recreational use of marijuana. Ten states, including Massachusetts and Vermont, have already legalized recreational use and more are poised to do so this year. Regardless of your stance on the issue, there is one thing we can all agree on...healthy, safe, and thriving communities. Join us as we have a conversation on what healthy, safe, and thriving communities look like in the era of legalized recreational use.

Lunch will be provided.
