MAC Public Health Task Force Policy Paper/Recommendations on the Impacts of Legalization of Recreational Marijuana
This paper highlights some of the major challenges and offers recommendations related to managing the impact of legalization of recreational marijuana. Membership on the MAC Public Health Task Force on Recreational Marijuana represents MAC member organizations including local and county governments, public health departments, employers, labor organizations, and healthcare providers.
Once approved, the recommendations will be included in the MAC Policy Platform and provide the basis for public information, education and advocacy with opinion leaders, elected officials, and the media. We will also work with other stakeholders, including local governments, law enforcement, and employers, to implement strategies to minimize the negative impacts on communities, workplace productivity, and safety.
