PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Kilmartin is hosting a forum on marijuana regulation and policy that will focus on learning from states that have legalized the drug.
Tuesday’s forum at Brown University will include speakers from the marijuana industry group the Coalition for Responsible Cannabis Production.
Representatives from states where marijuana is legal will also speak, including a representative from the city of Denver, another from the Washington attorney general’s office and a researcher from the Washington State Institute on Public Policy.
Massachusetts State Senator Jason Lewis, a Democrat who chairs the Massachusetts Special Senate Committee on Marijuana, will also speak.
