Keeping Up With Cannabis on Campus Webinar | April 18th at 1:00 p.m. EDT
This program is hosted in partnership with the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors and Holmes Murphy Fraternal Practice.
Over the past two decades, an ever-increasing pace of legal changes have affected the status of cannabis from an illegal street drug, to medicine, and now to an allowed intoxicant for adults in many U.S. states and bordering countries. There appears to be no stopping this process and for planning purposes, it is useful to assume that the trend will continue. Along with the legal status changes, are changes to the consumer product that is being sold. Both the increased legal access and the form in which cannabis is consumed pose challenges to campus policies, programs, and ultimately student health and success. This webinar will offer an overview of how legal adult-use cannabis is changing the way cannabis is used, its potential impact on campus culture, and concerns about misuse patterns that are emerging. We’ll also discuss how prevention programs, including education, interventions and policies may be adapted to address this changing environment.
We are pleased to host a webinar in partnership with the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors featuring Dr. Jim Lange, Executive Director of the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Drug Misuse Prevention and Recovery, an academic center of The Ohio State University. Dr. James Lange is the Executive Director of the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Drug Misuse Prevention and Recovery, an academic center of The Ohio State University. He does this while also remaining the Coordinator of Alcohol and Other Drug Initiatives for San Diego State University. Recently, Dr. Lange was SDSU’s first Director of the stand-alone Health Promotion Department.
