Professional Development: Lessons Learned from Legalized States
Session Description: Today’s marijuana is much more potent than in the past — with pot edibles, candies, cookies, ice creams, and waxes being up to 99% THC. In comparison, marijuana in the Woodstock era contained 5% THC. Colton Grace, Smart Approaches to Marijuana, will take participants through the latest facts and figures on what is really happening in legalized states and the overall goal of the legalization movement. He will walk participants through the impact of marijuana on communities — ranging from drugged driving and youth marijuana use to law enforcement concerns and public health costs. Finally, he will discuss the facts the media have ignored as the United States rushes to legalize marijuana.
