The public discussion on the marijuana initiative expected to be on the ballot in November 2016 is heating up. Last month, Governor Charlie Baker and other local leaders announced a new campaign against the legalization of marijuana. At the same time, the Boston Globe published an op ed by MPHA Forum Panelist, Dr. Kevin Hill, who argues that policymakers must focus on enacting sound marijuana policy.
Join us on Thursday, May 12th for a panel discussion with experts who hold vastly different positions on the issue to hear their reasons why legalization is either a long overdue criminal justice reform or a threat to public health and public safety in Massachusetts. Moderated panel discussion will be followed by Q & A with the audience.
