About this event

Despite legalization in dozens of states, half of all drug arrests are for cannabis, according to the FBI. The majority of those arrested are from communities of color.

Join the next Conversations on Cannabis live virtual forum on February 24, 2022 at noon to hear a panel of criminal justice experts share the consequences of being caught with unlawful possession of marijuana in Florida, and address racial disparities in the system.
