• Examine the impact of marijuana on communities — ranging from drugged driving and youth marijuana use to law enforcement concerns and public health costs.
• Discuss the facts the media have ignored as the United States rushes to legalize marijuana.
• Explore the complex concerns surrounding social justice issues.
