Cannabis: Moving Forward, Protecting Health
Momentum is building from coast to coast for legalization of cannabis for non-medical use, and public health expertise needs to be in the conversation. While a number of states have already legalized cannabis, many more are in the process, immersed in a complex web of questions, including producing cannabis safely while protecting employees, taxing effectively and fairly, marketing equitably, and regulating growers, processors, and retailers.
Cannabis: Moving Forward, Protecting Health takes decades of research and experience on regulating legal drugs such as tobacco and alcohol, and applies lessons learned to answer these vital questions and build a framework for the healthy regulation of cannabis.
The book offers the first and only evidence-based framework that policymakers and advocates can use as a starting point to design regulations that meet the needs and health of their citizens.
