Use of marijuana for recreation has been approved in Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Alaska and the District of Columbia while the debate is gaining momentum throughout the rest of the United States. The goal of this forum is to provide the Rhode Island community a platform for a thoughtful discussion regarding the issues surrounding marijuana legalization and to encourage further discussions among public stakeholders and the general public. Both proponents and opponents will present research and data so as to raise awareness while educating and dispelling myths on: health impacts, social justice, public safety impacts, taxation, revenue, and regulatory and social costs resulting from legalization. At the end of each session, audience members will have the opportunity to engage presenters in a moderated question and answer session. Who Should Attend Healthcare Professionals, Business Leaders, Educators, Legislators, Public Officials, Public Policy Leaders, Public Safety Officials and others interested in learning about these issues. Learning Objectives At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to: • Describe health risks and benefits of marijuana use including effects of marijuana on brain development & co-morbidities related to adolescent and adult marijuana use • Realize the responsibility of society in educating youth about the hazards of substance use and giving them the tools to make good decisions • Identify impacts of the proposed legislation on the justice system, public safety and civil liberties • Describe how the State’s marijuana market will be regulated under the proposed bill • Understand the amount of revenue that is expected and how the funds will be appropriated to benefit Rhode Islanders Accreditation The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
