How will legalized recreational marijuana impact our kids and communities?

The public is welcome to join Dr. Alan Woolf of Boston Children’s Hospital and state Senator Jason Lewis on Tuesday, Oct. 18, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 645 Main St., Melrose, for a discussion about the potential impact of upcoming Ballot Question 4: Legalization of Marijuana for Recreational Use.

Dr. Woolf will give an overview of how marijuana use, including edibles, can impact adolescent brain development. Senator Lewis will discuss how the bill is written and the potential impact for local communities. Dr. Woolf and Senator Lewis will answer important questions including: How could this impact our youth? What are edibles? Can our communities and schools benefit from tax revenues? What are the lessons learned from Colorado? An open Q& will take place at the end of the event.
