Getting it Right
From the Start
Advancing Public Health & Equity in Cannabis Policy
When California legalized cannabis through Proposition 64, the state left many of the details of cannabis policy to local jurisdictions. Our project works with cities and counties, as well as other states, to provide guidance on adopting cannabis policies that reduce harms, protect against youth and problem cannabis use, and ensure social equity.
