An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until June 17, 2021
Join us as we discuss the impact of the recent Marijuana legalization; its legislative history, the inequities the legislation seeks to redress and the impact it will have on black and brown communities as well as lawyers, criminal, civil and immigration, moving forward.

Session 2 will take a bird’s eye view on the war; it will focus on how we can move towards ending the war on drugs, decriminalization of drugs, the war’s overall impact on different groups, rating the government’s handling of this “war”, and the work that is left to do.
Melissa Moore, Drug Policy Alliance
Traci Gardner, Legal Action Center
