Reefer madness: Is the war on marijuana over?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This talk will give a brief history of marijuana laws in the U.S and explain how the enforcement of laws against marijuana are racist. It will examine the victory of legalizing marijuana for recreational use in four American states; the new, legal, profit-driven "canna-businesses"; and what legalization means for ending the War on Drugs.
