Cannabis Legalization: A Remembrance of Things Past
On October 17, Canada became the second country in the world to legalize recreational cannabis. This was met with much speculation about what the economic and social impacts would be. However, legalization of illegal substances is something that has been done before and there are several lessons that can be learned from that experience. Professor Steve Easton will explore what has happened when other substances have been legalized and what that could mean for cannabis legalization.
