The Committee on Drugs & the Law invites the public to a discussion on the current state of domestic marijuana laws and the possibilities for the future, in the wake of the recent legalization measures passed in Colorado and Washington. Members of the Committee will briefly discuss various topics including an overview of state marijuana laws across the country, the status of medical marijuana in New York State, the current tensions around state, federal, and international laws, and special issues such as land use, discrimination, and ethics involved with allowing or disallowing the use of marijuana. The presentation will be followed by an interactive discussion with the audience.
