Beau Kilmer describes the policy climate surrounding marijuana legalization at UF Law panel
The following article by CHRISTOPHER CURRY of the GAINSVILLE SUN summarizes the panel discussion that took place with marijuana policy experts on Oct. 24 at the University of Florida.
Beau Kilmer, a senior policy researcher at the RAND Corporation and co-director of the RAND Drug Policy Research Center, said each side in the debate could make a legitimate claim that science is on its side.
“Both sides can bring up five peer-reviewed studies that say the exact opposite thing,” Kilmer said.
He said the ongoing national debate on marijuana should spark a new generation of research and more definitive answers.
