HSU Symposium On Enviro, Health Effects Of Cannabis This Thursday, April 26

Monday, April 23, 2012

HUMBOLDT STATE – HSU Marijuana Studies Working Group presents a Symposium on the Ecological and Human Health Impacts of the Marijuana Industry in the Emerald Triangle.

This symposium will gather social and natural scientists to discuss the environmental and human health impacts of the marijuana industry in the Emerald Triangle.

Researchers and practitioners specializing in some of the lesser-known topics around marijuana production – land use, pesticide use, water quality, and other environmental impacts – will provide some perspective on important issues that are often left out of mainstream discussion and political analysis of the marijuana economy.

Panelists will propose a more constructive and progressive approach to ensure environmental and human health protections.

The symposium will be held on Thursday, April 26 at 2 p.m. in the BSS Native Forum. This will be the first of a series of discussions on the topic of environmental impacts related to the marijuana industry.  The event is free and open to the public.
