UW & WSU Symposium on Marijuana Research in Washington

by

On May 18, 2018, the University of Washington’s Alcohol & Drug Abuse Institute hosted its 3rd Symposium on Marijuana Research in Washington, this year in collaboration with colleagues from Washington State University.

The keynote speaker, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson (pictured below), spoke about issues of federal vs. state marijuana laws, and about Washington’s law protecting local jurisdictions’ right to exclude marijuana retail stores even if the product is legal in the state.

Scientists from the UW and WSU presented panels in three focus areas:

  • Marijuana and Vulnerable Populations
  • Cannabinoids: Therapeutic Potential
  • Marijuana Use & Other Substances: Substitution, Combination, or Both?

The event drew approximately 200 researchers, state and local officials, and community partners.

ADAI received funds from Washington’s Marijuana Dedicated Fund to support marijuana research and information dissemination, described in a report covering activities from July 2015-June 2017.
