Community responses to cannabis legalization

More than half of the US population now live in states where medical or adult-use of cannabis is allowed. As the legal landscape evolves in our own states, prevention practitioners have a role to play in addressing youth cannabis use. The presenter, Gisela Rots, will provide an overview of risk and protective factors, and key considerations for policy and communication strategies to prevent youth use. 

In this session, how risk and protective factors are evolving in a changing cannabis landscape will be discussed. Participants will also hear about key considerations for strategies related to preventing youth cannabis use.
