Several states will have initiatives on the 2016 ballot for varying degrees of marijuana legalization. If California alone introduces recreational marijuana, one-sixth of the U.S. workforce will live in legal marijuana states.

This webinar will underscore trending in laws as well as products, use, and outcomes that impact us all.
