CADCA presented the latest installment of its Research Into Action webinar series on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 from 2-3 pm EDT featuring Sue Thau, CADCA consultant, and Karolina Deuth, Evaluation and Research Manager. Together, they discussed CADCA’s publication, “Practical Theorist 12: Cannabis, The Current State of Affairs,” released in July 2020.
Ms. Thau and Ms. Deuth discussed the latest cannabis research as presented in the latest Practical Theorist. The publication highlights research regarding how cannabis is used, the science behind its effects on the body, youth cannabis use and the landscape of legalization and community prevention efforts. Ms. Thau and Ms. Deuth will also discussed how coalitions can advocate for local policies that counteract state-level marijuana legalization.
