Marijuana Policy in the U.S.: From the War on Drugs to Rapid Reform
John Hudak, Senior Fellow in Governance Studies and Deputy Director of the Center for Effective Public Management at the Brookings Institution
Free and open to the public.
Marijuana reform has become a mainstream part of public policy over the last 20 years. However, the U.S. has had a rocky relationship with the cannabis plant since the Founding. In a new book, Marijuana: A Short History, the Brookings Institution’s John Hudak profiles how policy has evolved; how factors like economics, racism, politics, and public opinion have shaped policy, and what the future of marijuana policy may hold.
