Cannabis legalization in New Jersey has been a hot topic, and rightfully so. 
As the landscape of legal cannabis emerges in New Jersey, it is important for each sector of our community to think strategically at the local level to best protect youth and other vulnerable populations. Attendees of this conference will gain an understanding of:

  • Current drug trends including cannabis, alcohol, vaping, stimulants, and prescription medication

  • The potential impact of substance use on youth, including adverse childhood experiences (ACES)

  • Public health approaches to address cannabis legalization

This free virtual conference will provide information to engage and connect businesses, school systems, law enforcement, local municipal government, and community members in an effort to identify public health approaches to reduce substance use and promote healthy communities.
