'Reefer Sanity' marijuana forum set for June 17 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. on June 17.

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

Organizers hope the forum will help inform state and local policymakers about 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.

Sabet is the co-founder of the Smart Approaches to Marijuana campaign and is a past senior advisory for policy for the White House's Office of National Drug Control Policy. He started the movement to educate the community on medical marijuana and he is concerned about the national trend towards legalization.

State and local policymakers are invited.

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