The Marijuana Policy Project’s Rob Kampia will moderate a discussion around what led to the sudden shift in marijuana laws across the country. Panelists will go on to predict which states will be next to pass both medical and adult-use marijuana legislation and to debate what needs to happen in order for Congress to change federal marijuana policy? Which states are next in line to pass marijuana legislation, and what factors determine when states are ready to push for reform?
