Join us on April 20, 2023 (12-1pm PT) for our next ADAI Lunch & Learn:

Addressing the Risks of High-THC Cannabis: The Public Health and Legislative Saga

Presenters: Beatriz Carlini, PhD, MPH, Sharon Garrett, MA, MPH, Lexi Nims, BA (ADAI Cannabis Education & Research Program)

With cannabis commercialization has come the wide availability of new products containing highly concentrated THC. Evidence suggests that use of high-THC products contributes to adverse health effects, such as cannabis use disorder and psychosis. Presenters will share the public health efforts to address this risk focusing on the interface of public health and legislative action. They will conclude by presenting results of a legislative mandate to identify policy solutions grounded in science and supported by a range of stakeholder perspectives.
