Session Type: Breakout Sessions

Because many cannabis reforms have been propelled by ballot measures, new cannabis laws have not consistently sought to redress past and enduring harms of cannabis criminalization. This session will explore how cannabis reforms could and should seek to address individual and structural harms that have resulted from prohibitionist policies and their disproportionate burden on certain populations. Session moderated by Shaleen Title and Amol Sinha.
