Newly legalized for recreational use in Massachusetts, cannabis is an addictive substance with both health risks and benefits. What will be the consequences of legalization? How should regulations minimize the potential public health risk while respecting legal access to cannabis for recreational purposes? This discussion will explore the potential consequences of legalizing recreational cannabis, and what we may expect to unfold in the coming years.
