Cannabis has been shown to help patients suffering from a variety of conditions, including cancer, Crohn's disease, PTSD, Alzheimer's and chronic pain -- and yet Virginia continues to arrest 20,000+ people per year for simple possession.
Meanwhile, opioid use has increased dramatically, leading to many severe consequences. The 29 states + DC who have medical marijuana laws see an average 25% reduction in opioid fatalities.
Isn't it time we revisit Virginia's drug laws?
This forum will feature speakers with expertise in public policy, criminal justice, medicine, veterans affairs and law enforcement.
Come learn from experts about the recent developments related to medical marijuana, opioids and the implications of Virginia's current laws.
