Altered States of Cannabis Regulation: Informing Policy with Science
2019 Center on Addiction & Behavior Change Symposium • Wednesday, April 17, 2019
Duke Institute for Brain Sciences Multipurpose Room, B035 Levine Science Research Center, West Campus, Duke University

People have used cannabis medicinally, spiritually, and recreationally for millennia. In recent years, cannabis use in the U.S. has become more generally acceptable. Regulation of cannabis use must proceed in light of potential medical applications and toxicological risks. This Center on Addiction & Behavior Change (CABC) symposium, "Altered States of Cannabis Regulation: Informing Policy with Science," brings together experts on the medical uses of cannabis and its components and the risks posed by cannabis abuse, as well as potential developmental impacts on children of parents using cannabis. Policy and legal scholars will provide insight on how medical and toxicological science can inform policy on optimal regulation of cannabis and its derivatives. 

Co-sponsors: CABC, DIBS, Duke CIPHERS Center (Cannabis-Induced Potential Heritability of Epigenetic Revisions in Sperm), funded by the John Templeton Foundation. Organizer: Edward D. Levin, PhD, Co-director, CABC
