The Cannabis Question


On February 22, 2021, Governor Phil Murphy signed three bills into law that addressed the legalization of cannabis (the legal word for marijuana). With this, the legalization of cannabis pushed forward a discourse for all New Jersey citizens to take part in.

With questions and concerns so large about the impact on youth, the justice system, and the development of local economies, it is with good reason people are scrambling to find answers to these questions. There have been up-and-coming changes to ratify, clarify, and amend what can and should be done surrounding cannabis. The resources for this are now being created and utilized in all spaces and people are asking themselves: What is cannabis? How can law enforcement enforce such policies? What are the ramifications of such a policy that includes this kind of discourse? How can I protect my children?

In a contribution to round out the conversation, PBS NOVA has a documentary based on the risks and benefits of legalization. The Prevention Coalition of Mercer County will be hosting a viewing of this documentary.

Registrants will be able to attend one of two available viewings of this documentary with the Zoom meeting link below. The event will take place on Wednesday, October 21st, 2021. 

- First Viewing: 12:00PM - 1:30PM

- Second Viewing: 6:00PM - 7:30 PM

This event is also on the Mercer Council Events Calendar. The link works for both viewings. Hope to see you there! 

Meeting Registration - Zoom
