Smart Approaches to Marijuana Webinar: Social Justice Issues Related to Marijuana, Part II

August 27, 2020 @ 1:00 pm


Please join Will Jones III, MPA, SAM Communications & Community Outreach Associate, exclusive part two in our webinar series on the intersection of marijuana legalization and social justice.

Big Pot’s army of lobbyists argue that marijuana legalization will alleviate many social justice issues. But by virtually every measure, these promises are vastly unfulfilled. Even worse, it is clear that the marijuana industry has copied the playbook of Big Tobacco and alcohol conglomerates by loading their storefronts up in communities of color and low income neighborhoods.

SAM presenter, Will Jones, will offer best practices and ideas for smart marijuana policies that will foster long-term social justice for marginalized and underrepresented communities. Mr. Jones will share how to better navigate and dispel the many myths around social justice being the real goal of marijuana legalization. Learn how to navigate the complex concerns surrounding social justice issues and understand how to activate the grassroots in your community. Deadline to Register: August 27th, 12:00 PM EST.
