Overview

It’s no secret that the public attitude towards marijuana is shifting rapidly. Professor Emily Dufton guides you through the evolution of American attitudes concerning marijuana, starting with the iconic “reefer madness” movement to today’s changing laws, which are moving in favor of recreational and medicinal use. You’ll see how the public perception of pot has shifted from thinking it is one of our most troubling issues to viewing it as a solution to many different issues.
