Symposium on Legal Marijuana in WA

Videos & Slides from the 2013 Symposium

Now that recreational marijuana has been legalized in our state, key questions are arising. 

This symposium, attended by 150 people from organizations involved in research, treatment, prevention, and policymaking explored:

· What we already know about marijuana use
· What we need to know
· How research can inform both policy and practice

The symposium, the first in a series, featured researchers from the University of Washington and speakers from the community, with interactive discussion and Q&A sessions.
