Spring 2019, PSYC 296-01: Special Topics: The Marijuana Question (4). This course explores a.) how the basic and clinical pharmacology of cannabis and cannabis products interconnects with policy and practice in the realms of public health, legislation, and law enforcement; b.) how these interconnections have informed shifting public attitudes toward the use of cannabis in medical and recreational contexts; and c.) how incomplete understanding of cannabis effects in key knowledge domains demands coordinated initiatives in basic, clinical, and public health research to foster formulation of coherent and effective public policy going forward.
