Webinar: A prevention practitioners' guide to HHS Region 10 state cannabis policies and regulations
We know that addressing policy is a key component of prevention work with long term and lasting effects, but where do you start, especially when the landscape may seem complex and confusing? Understanding regulatory language and processes might be challenging at first, but like many challenges, it gets easier the more you do it. And having access to tools that help you line up the pieces and fit them together will contribute to your success.
This session will introduce you to the components of a toolkit for addressing cannabis policy from a public health and prevention framework. The tools provided will be explained, including the basic principles on which they were developed, the relevance for each of the HHS Region 10 states, and ways you can use them as you work in your communities to address issues around cannabis policy and regulations. The tools will be easily accessible on the PTTC webpage, and you will have the opportunity to make recommendations for additional tools.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the purpose of the toolkit
- Access each component online and be familiar with its contents
- Describe the inter-relatedness of the components and how they work together
- Explain the 5Ps for prevention policy work
- List 2-4 ways you will be able to use the toolkit
