As an ever-growing number of states consider legalizing and regulating recreational cannabis, questions continue to arise about evidence-based practices grounded in public health and social equity. Our webinar briefly overviews basic regulatory options for cannabis legalization that are informed by tobacco control and other best practices. Speakers look at takeaways from California's recreational cannabis system, which has been in operation for several years, and describe how lessons learned from tobacco regulation and public health could be applied at the state and local level in other states newer to legalization, like Michigan.
