Marijuana: America's Fastest Growing Public Policy

Wednesday, November 16, 2016
4:00pm – 5:00pm

Storrs Campus
Oak Hall 101

UConn Alumni: JOHN HUDAK

Author of Marijuana: A Short History (2016) will be giving an informative talk about the attitudes toward the dried byproduct of Cannabis sativa. Focusing on politics, the media, government and education, this talk describes why public policy has changed, and what that change might mean for marijuana’s future place in society.

Marijuana: A Short History provides a brief yet compelling narrative that discusses the social and cultural history of marijuana but also tells us how a once-vilified plant has been transformed into a serious, even mainstream, public policy issue.
