Cannabis policy had undergone rapid change in New England over the past decade. All New England states have some form of medical cannabis policy, while now four of the six states have legalized cannabis for adult use. This presentation will take a look at what is happening with cannabis policy in New England, examine the potential implications for risk factors associated with cannabis use disorder, and what the emerging science is telling us in terms of how to reduce harms for those who may be using cannabis.
