"In 1996, California became the first state to legalize medical marijuana. As of 2018, more than thirty states and the District of Columbia have passed laws legalizing the drug at some level. Ten of those states--including Vermont, Alaska, Oregon, Colorado, and Washington--have legalized marijuana for recreational use, and many other states are considering similar legislation. [This book] examines marijuana legalization from the perspectives of those directly involved in some aspect of the controversy. Nancy E. Marion and Joshua B. Hill bring together interviews with representatives from a variety of integral groups affected by marijuana legalization--medical professionals, educators, parents, lawmakers, drug users, and others. Their study examines states that have legaized (or are considering legalizing) marijuana to get impressions of the impact the reform has made (or will make) in their area. Pubilc support for reform is more widespread than ever before, but much debate remains over the issue. [This book] increases our understanding of the differing opinions professionals hold regarding this important topic." -- Back cover.
