States across the country are implementing legislation on medical and recreational marijuana use, and local ballot initiatives in Wisconsin show support for discussion of the issue here. Join the EBHPP for a Capitol Briefing that aims to help inform this discussion in Wisconsin by taking a look at what we know (and don’t know) about the health effects of cannabis, and a look at the implementation of these laws in other states.

Mr. Queensland will provide a brief overview of current law in Wisconsin

Robert Wallace, MD, MSc
Professor and Irene Ensminger Stecher Professor in Cancer Research, University of Iowa College of Public Health
