An important part of prevention is community action. Usually this takes the form of policy advocacy towards a regulatory environment that limits the abuse potential and risky settings of a substance. Assuming that legalization is the framework for marijuana, what regulatory environment or enforcement activities should be advocated for?

Then we will explore the likely risks associated with those models, and try to find appropriate research to suggest improving the controls on the distribution and access to limit public health risks.
