In partnership with the Academy for Justice, we covered an episode on “The Controlled Substances Act at 50 Years”, which was a wonderful conference held at ASU’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law in February 2020 before quarantine.
The timing for this episode couldn’t be better, as there is an ongoing national discussion on War on Drugs, the Opioid Crisis, Racial Bias, and Women’s Reproductive Rights. Host Chase Turrentine sits with our guests to discuss all these topics.
Ethan Nadelmann (founder of Drug Policy Alliance), Deborah Small (Executive Director of Break the Chains), Aila Hoss (Professor of Law at the University of Tulsa College of Law, and Marisa Rodriguez (Director, San Francisco Office of Cannabis) are leaders in this area and they take us through crucial aspects of these issues -- regulation, criminal justice reform, impact on Native communities and other marginalized communities.
