Title of Presentation: Marijuana Legalization: Potential Implications for Criminal Justice and RSAT Programming
Description: This month’s webinar will focus on the effect marijuana legalization will have on criminal justice. Currently 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis for recreational use. What impact will recreational marijuana legalization have on Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) programming? Because legalization is relatively new, and policy and regulations are evolving, broad generalizations about the impact on criminal justice, law enforcement and RSAT programs are difficult to identify at this point in time. This presentation will provide an overview of marijuana legalization with a preliminary analysis/overview of the anticipated effects on criminal justice and RSAT programming.

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  •  Identify key issues, concerns related to the impact cannabis legalization is having in states that have legalized medical and recreational cannabis markets
  •  Explain the importance of surveillance data collection and analysis in monitoring and responding to emerging issues
  •  Describe three key areas of potential impact on criminal justice, law enforcement, and prison based programs related to cannabis legalization
