Prosecuting Cannabis: Approaches from States without Legalization
May 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm
Over the last decade, a large number of states have adopted various forms of marijuana reform. To date, 21 states have legalized marijuana for recreational purposes and 38 have legalized medical marijuana use. While public opinion polls suggest that the vast majority of people support marijuana legalization, less is known about the opinions and policies of prosecuting attorneys in states that have not yet legalized marijuana for any purpose.
Join the Prosecutors and Politics Project at UNC School of Law and the Drug Enforcement and Policy Center at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law for a conversation with a panel of legal experts and academics. Panelists will discuss results from a recent study of marijuana enforcement and examine how different district attorney offices approach marijuana offenses.
