2021 Fellowship Program Product - CANNABIS IN THE UNITED STATES A TOOLKIT FOR NON-CITIZENS IN MAINE
CANNABIS IN THE UNITED STATES A TOOLKIT FOR NON-CITIZENS IN MAINE
The toolkit provides education for immigrants, refugees, asylum seekers, and green card holders about cannabis, which some states have legalized but remains federally illicit. The toolkit (including a fact sheet) is translated into eight languages identified as priorities by community partners in Maine. The toolkit aims to support non-citizens in making informed decisions about working in the cannabis industry or how using cannabis may impact legal standing as a non-citizen.
