Presentation Description

Commercialized recreational markets for marijuana have been legalized in 11 states and Washington, D.C., and the marijuana industry continues their push for profits with Pennsylvania in their crosshairs. Join Dr. Aaron Weiner to discuss the many public misconceptions surrounding marijuana and drug policy potions, his experiences with the marijuana industry push in Illinois, and strategies for drug prevention and youth messaging in an unprecedented era of marijuana industry influence.



CPA, keeping in line with our mission and vision, is against the legalization of recreational marijuana in PA. This stance is in support of the youth and next generation of residents.   As an organization whose founding principles are on drug use prevention, it is clear that legalization of marijuana reduces harm perception, increases accessibility and presents a clear and present danger to the youth of the Commonwealth.
