Is marijuana becoming the next Big Tobacco? Dr. Kevin Sabet will go through the latest developments over the battle to legalize marijuana and will review the latest science about the drug – highlighting why science and policy are often disconnected. Dr. Sabet makes the claim that our greatest concern about the recent wave of marijuana legalization should be the inevitable rise of a second Big Tobacco industry. Dr. Sabet, advisor to three U.S. presidential administrations, has studied, researched, written about, and implemented drug policy for more than 20 years. In 2013, he co-founded a non-profit organization, Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM), with Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy, which advocates for a public health based marijuana policy. He is currently a fellow at Yale University, and the Director of the Drug Policy Institute at the University of Florida and the President of SAM.
