Event Details

The history of cannabis is long, complex, and fascinating. While it has been used in a variety of ways by humans for thousands of years, we have a complicated relationship with the plant today. In order to understand more about the unique properties of this controversial dioecious, flowering herb, we can look to major historical events, public policy and public opinion, and the messaging surrounding marijuana over the last century to gain insight about the continued federal prohibition, despite state-by-state legalization.

From pharmacopeias to Reefer Madness, from counterculture to stoner stigma, the history of the plant has been shaped by many factors. You’re invited to join us for a Cannabis Community Conversation, a public event facilitated by trained community educators that is designed to help audiences learn more about the world’s most popular illicit substance and how and why we have arrived at the cannabis renaissance of today.

The Cannabis Community Conversation program is sponsored by Elucidation Strategies, a New Jersey communications agency that focuses on cannabis education and messaging.


The purpose of this Cannabis Community Conversation, an interactive public program brought to you by a trained community educator, is to provide credible and relevant information for audiences interested in learning more about cannabis history to better understand the topic of cannabis in 2023 in New Jersey and beyond. 

This program is designed to be informational. The information shared during this event is not intended to provide medical, legal, or any other type of professional advice. Also, it is important to note that cannabis content shared in this program is not encouraging consumption and/or promoting use. The objective is to provide a summary of the less commonly known historical highlights and varied perspectives about topics related to cannabis to help communities deepen their understanding of a truly unique plant.
