With the legalization of recreational cannabis markets in Uruguay, Canada, and several U.S. states, a breakthrough in conventional cannabis policy is emerging.

But legalization is not a binary choice between prohibition and some regulated commercial model (like alcohol). A commercial market is just one of many ways to implement legalization—and moving directly from prohibition to commercial legalization leaps from one extreme to the other.

Tom Decorte, a criminologist and anthropologist at Ghent University (Belgium), who has published numerous articles on substance use, cannabis markets, and local drug monitoring systems, argues that most of us are bypassing other, safer forms of legalization, including the nonprofit model. He explores topics such as:

– Why we need to consider regulation of cannabis markets.

– How local authorities and grassroots movements are advocating change.

– How to best design and implement approaches to legalization.

Join the author as he examines international regulatory controls over cannabis possession, use, and cultivation—as well as a framework for regulating the cannabis market via a nonprofit corporate model that promotes public health and safety over profits.
