(Opening Ceremony)
Course No. 1000, July 11, 2017, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Grapevine C/D

Harnessing more than two decades of experience in policy, Dr. Sabet, 37, combines humor with science, wit with clarity, and pragmatism with inspiration in this lively presentation. He will talk about the perils of Big Pot — the big tobacco of our time, as Dr Kevin Sabet will argue. Dr. Sabet will go through the latest developments over the battle to legalize marijuana, and will review the latest science about the drug. Dr. Sabet’s presentation is based on his book “Reefer Sanity: Seven Great Myths About Marijuana.” In his presentation he will provide an overview of the current drug policy trends in the United States, and debunk some of the most cited myths about marijuana use, for instance: marijuana is harmless and non-addictive, and legalization will solve the government’s budgetary problems.
