LifeLong Learning Program-The Opioid Epidemic and Marijuana Legalization: Our Responsibilities and Our Rights

Americans demonstrate an immense appetite for the use of legal psychiatric medications and illegal recreational drugs. This fact contributes to contemporary issues such as the opioid addiction crisis and the legalization of marijuana. What are our responsibilities for addressing these problems? How can we act as responsible citizens to protect ourselves from harm and simultaneously protect our freedoms?

Facilitator: Scott Kraly has a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from The Johns Hopkins University; Four postdoctoral years at Dept. of Psychiatry at Cornell Medical College; 41 years on faculty at Colgate University; currently Charles A.
