Altered States: Cannabis regulation in the US – Ensuring social justice and equity: 15:00 BST/ 10:00 ET
June 2 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Transform is pleased to invite you to our upcoming webinar on cannabis regulation in the US, the first in a two-part series on lessons from cannabis regulation. This webinar launches our new report ‘Altered States: Cannabis regulation in the US’.
This new report compares how cannabis has been regulated in the eleven states that have legalised the drug – addressing developing good practice and issues that have been encountered along the way.
We will be joined by US and UK experts Shaleen Title, Kassandra Frederique and Dr Kojo Koram for a discussion on how states have sought to facilitate principles of social justice and equity in new regulatory regimes, including by widening market access and removing historical criminal records, with vary degrees of success. Kassandra Frederique is the Managing Director of Policy Advocacy and Campaigns at Drug Policy Alliance (DPA). Shaleen Title is a Commissioner serving the social justice seat on the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission. Dr Kojo Koram is a Lecturer in Law at Birkbeck College, University of London.
The webinar will include a presentation on the key findings of the report from Harvey Slade, Research and Policy Officer at Transform. Join us for this on 2nd June at 15.00 BST (10.00 ET).
