Avoiding Cannabis Chaos: Better Policies and Strategies for a Legal Market

February 2, 2023 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

| Free

Legalizing cannabis was supposed to undercut drug cartels and ensure a well-regulated market for what was once known as the devil’s weed. But in the years since the industry was legalized in certain states, there has been growing concern about corruption, crime, environmental degradation and allegations of labor abuse. Furthermore, an explosion of high-potency products, from vapes to gummies to ice cream, is raising health concerns. Please join our panel of distinguished experts as they debate how to better regulate this new market so that consumers are protected and the industry operates on the up-and-up.

This event is co-hosted by the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy and the USC Schaeffer Center for Health Policy & Economics.
