STEM Café: Legalization of Cannabis

Cannabis has been illegal for a relatively short period of time in the U.S. and drug enforcement has led to increases in violent crime.  With marijuana becoming legal in Illinois in January of 2020, what changes can we expect to see?

At the next STEM Café, join NIU Political Science Professor Scot Schraufnagel for a lively discussion about the costs and benefits of legal cannabis.

Learn when and why cannabis became illegal in the U.S., the history of medicinal cannabis and the current spread of legal marijuana policies across America.
