Cannabis Equity

Course Number: 69800

Course Description

The course will explore how federal law and policy relating to medical and non-medical use of cannabis has evolved in the United States and discuss ethical issues of equity related to the industry. By examining the War on Drugs in the US, we will look at cannabis prohibition and consider the impacts of these laws and policies. Cannabis prohibition has been disproportionately harmful to BIPOC communities and we will examine the short and long term socio-economic impacts. As legalization continues across the US and this rapidly growing industry is projected to make $33 billion by the end of 2022, we will investigate issues of equity in the market.
