IPAC-U - Politics, Policy, Pressure, and Pot: Cannabis Legalization in Canada - Dr. Jared Wesley

What are governments aiming to achieve through cannabis legalization?  How have they coordinated their efforts to define and meet their objectives? How have they moved from prohibition to legalization in a matter of months? And what are their prospects for success?  Dr. Jared Wesley explores these and other questions in a one-hour workshop exploring policymaking under pressure.
