Greve Participates in Brookings Forum on Legalized Marijuana

Professor Michael Greve was a participant in a forum on marijuana legalization and the federal-state balance that was co-sponsored by Brookings Institution Governance Studies and the Washington Office on Latin America. The event took place on January 8 in Washington, D.C., and was titled, "Washington v. Washington (and Colorado): Who Should Decide About Marijuana?"

In the wake of the decisions of two states to legalize marijuana in defiance of federal drug laws, the program's participants discussed what would be at stake in a potential confrontation on the issue and how best to resolve it, including the importance of how it might be handled and how it might influence the federal-state balance on other issues. 

Joining Greve in the panel discussion were Angela Hawken, Pepperdine University Professor of Public Policy, and Troy Eid, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Colorado. 

The program was broadcast live on C-SPAN2 and streamed at c-span.org.
