As Jan. 1 legalization of cannabis nears, many questions remain about the future of California’s recreational cannabis industry. As part of ongoing research into the industry, The Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research (HIIMR) has invited a prominent occupational health researcher to speak at HSU on November 30, 2017. Marc Schenker, Professor Emeritus of Public Health Sciences and Medicine at the UC Davis School of Medicine, has been studying the working conditions for cannabis employees, and will share what his research has revealed. He will discuss the state of knowledge about health hazards found in outdoor and indoor cannabis facilities.
