FORUM ON MARIJUANA MYTHS SCHEDULED AT CONN COLLEGE

New London - Ledge Light Health District and seven substance abuse prevention coalitions throughout Connecticut will present, "Reefer Sanity: Seven Great Myths about Marijuana with Dr. Kevin Sabet," from 9 to 11 a.m. June 17.

The forum will take place in the 1941 Room in the College Center at Crozier Williams at Connecticut College.

The purpose is to inform state and local policymakers about this important public health issue. Sabet will discuss marijuana's impact on youth, the importance of preventing another "Big Tobacco," legal reform, as well as the latest data and experiences from Colorado and Washington. He is the co-founder of Smart Approaches to Marijuana and past senior advisory for policy to the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. He started the movement to educate the community on medical marijuana and he is concerned with the national trend toward legalization.

State and local policy makers are invited.

Ledge Light is the public health agency that serves East Lyme, Groton, Ledyard, New London and Waterford.
