      Ojai Chautauqua Panel - Is Legal Cannabis Good for Ojai?

      Ojai Chautauqua PanelIs Legal Cannabis Good for Ojai?Sunday, July 28, 2019​ Schedule:3:00 - 5:00PM Location: CHANGE OF VENUE: The Sane Living Center316 East Matilija Street in Ojai ​The legal history of cannabis in the United States began with state-level prohibition in the early 20th century, with the first major federal limitations occurring in 1937. Starting with Oregon in 1973, individual states began to liberalize cannabis laws through decriminalization. In 1996, California became the first state to legalize medical cannabis, sparking a trend that spread to a majority of states by 2016. In 2012, Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize cannabis for recreational use. Now that this development has been in place for some time, what outcomes have been quantified, and what benefits have been construed?      a) Has there been any change in traffic accident rates?      b) Has there been any change in crime rates?      c) Has there been any change in reduced pain medication use?      d) Has there been any change in hospitalization rates?      e) Has there been any change in adolescent cannabis use?      f) Have there been tax benefits for cities and states?      g) Has legalization changed the black market trade? We look forward to exploring this complicated and divisive issue with a  panel of experts as they discuss these and other questions of legal cannabis. Panelists include: David Bearman, MD - Medical Director of Zona SecaRyan Blatz - Ojai City CouncilChristopher Danch - Hoban Law GroupJames Fryhoff - Chief of PoliceDaniel Hicks - Manager, Ventura County Behavioral HealthChelsea Sutula - CEO of Sespe Creek Collective
