Videos of President Carter, Other Presenters at Marijuana Workshop Now Available

See videotapes of President Jimmy Carter and all other presenters at a marijuana workshop hosted by National Families in Action for leaders from Colorado, Washington, and other states in Atlanta in May . Designed for state legislative and executive-branch leaders, the workshop had two goals: 1) to encourage states that legalized commercial marijuana to prevent that industry from marketing to children like the tobacco and alcohol industries do and 2) to help other states seek marijuana policies that neither incarcerate low-level offenders nor legalize the drug.

Noted scientists from several different disciplines presented at the workshop.

President Carter told participants, “I do not favor legalization. We must do everything we can to discourage marijuana use, as we do now with tobacco and excessive drinking. We have to prevent making marijuana smoking from becoming attractive to young people, which is, I’m sure, what the producers of marijuana….are going to try and do.”
