About the event

A Potent Moment explores US cannabis legislation in the context of drug policy and suggests utilizing legalization to advance social justice. The racial origins of cannabis prohibition and how War of Drugs prosecutors have harmed minorities are discussed. Many detailed case studies evaluate the newest state-level cannabis legalization movement's success and failure, particularly in tackling social inequity. The author explores the challenge of implementing successful policy in the face of federal cannabis criminality throughout the book and in a chapter discussing nationwide legalization. A Potent Moment ends with a forceful call to change American drug policy from fear, stigma, and punishment to evidence-based, compassionate methods.
