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.
