I recorded a podcast with Sarah Edwards, of UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy. Listen to Talk Policy to Me “Talking Weed Policy” here. Here’s the blurb:
Jaunary 2019 marked the one-year anniversary of the legalization of recreational cannabis use in California, and the launch of the Cannabis Research Center at UC Berkeley. Sarah Edwards (MPP ‘20) sat down with Michael Polson, researcher and anthropologist, to discuss the impact of legalization on the growers and on the rural communities whose economies often center on cannabis cultivation. Tune in to unpack the equity concerns of the new process, the role of stigma in media narratives, and the personal implications of these changes.
