Public Health Approaches to Marijuana Legalization

The O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law, in collaboration with the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA), has received a grant from the Open Philanthropy Project to help develop guidelines on how states, countries, and other jurisdictions that opt to legalize cannabis for medical or recreational purposes can create regulatory frameworks, consistent with the goals of legalization, that will work effectively to protect and promote the public health.
