PDS1664: Counseling, Programming and Policy in the Age of Legal Marijuana
April 2, 2020, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$90
This course will provide an overview of the history of marijuana policy in America and will cover both state and federal laws. It will focus on the most recent US and International studies on marijuana to discuss how it affects the brain and the body. Participants will take part in a discussion about the seven great marijuana myths (including that it is harmless and non-addictive). We will discuss how marijuana criminalization has affected the criminal justice system. The economics of marijuana will be a particular focus, as the instructor will discuss medical marijuana, taxes, regulation, marketing and how marijuana may be a new big tobacco. This workshop does not qualify for NBCC clock hours.
