Marijuana: the Law and Social Policy

The Maddox Law Firm, LLC will host a presentation, Marijuana: The Law and Social Policy on Monday, Jan. 30, from 7-8 p.m., in the rotary room of the Fairfield Public Library. The free event is open to adults and high school students.

This presentation will explain State and federal marijuana laws, including laws that pertain to medical marijuana in Connecticut. There will be discussion about some of the risks and potential costs that we are facing as marijuana becomes legalized in other states and appears to be trending toward greater mainstream acceptance.

Discussion will include marijuana’s longstanding medical history and recent experience in Colorado and Washington related to distribution regulations as well as tax revenue. It will also touch upon some of the chemical and neurological considerations that we should understand about marijuana’s impact upon the developing adolescent brain, addictive behavior and as a gateway to other behaviors.
