Highly Educated: The Cannabis Project

Weed. Dope. Hash. Ganja. Herb. Mary Jane. We may reference it in a variety of ways yet we have an incomplete understanding of the cannabis plant and its derivatives.  In the United States today, laws, regulations, and opinions are being created using contradictory information and relatively unknown science on the subject. LabX is rolling out a new program series, Highly Educated, that invites us to explore the science of cannabis. Together we will investigate the knowns and the unknowns of the plant through interactive spaces, discussions with experts, and thought-provoking events that just might rewrite your own opinions. Follow this project on social media: #HighlyEducated.

These landmark changes in policy have impacted cannabis use patterns and perceived levels of risk.
