Event

Profs & Pints: The Pot-Law Pendulum
Profs and Pints presents: "The Pot-Law Pendulum," with Emily Dufton, public historian, Montgomery College lecturer, and author of Grass Roots: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Marijuana in America.

Washington, DC, joins nine states in having legalized recreational marijuana use for adults and 29 states in having legalized medical marijuana. It's a mistake, though, to assume marijuana's continued legality is certain. We were in a similar position 40 years ago, when a dozen states decriminalized the drug, only to have those laws reversed during the "Just Say No" 1980s. A new anti-marijuana counterrevolution is currently forming, and today's liberalized drug policies are anything but secure.

Hear Dr. Dufton, a scholar of the history of marijuana laws, describe the long, strange trip such laws have taken, and the battles that thousands of grass-roots activists have waged for and against the drug.  She'll talk about what the history of such activism means for activists today, and what the future holds. (Tickets $10 in advance and $12 at the door.)
