Background Information: A German social work student research team from Merseburg University of Applied Sciences will be visiting USC on Nov. 15th and 16th. They are investigating how cannabis is integrated into the everyday lives of users in Germany (where cannabis is illegal for recreational use) compared to California where cannabis has been recently legalized.
Description: The Symposium will feature leading USC and Merseburg University faculty experts in cannabis use who will present their research findings and offer comparative perspectives on cannabis use between Germany and the United States.
Purpose: The event aims to break down the stigma, enhance awareness, spark potential interest, and provide research resources for students. This Symposium serves as a platform to discuss research findings and issues regarding cannabis use in California and Germany from a social work perspective.
