LACDPH to Host Webinar on Health Equity Implications of Cannabis Regulation

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) Center for Health Impact Evaluation will host a live webinar on the “Health Equity Implications of Cannabis Regulation in Los Angeles County” on Thursday, September 12 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am.

LACDPH recently completed the health impact assessment at the request of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and examined the potential health impacts of policy and regulatory decisions related to 1) cannabis business locations and density; 2) cannabis business practices; 3) cannabis regulatory enforcement; and 4) cannabis taxation. The assessment details a series of health equity-informed recommendations for cities and counties, local government agency and departmental leaders, and community advocates.

Local health department executives and staff are encouraged to join the webinar. Registration for the webinar is available here.
