For decades, the United States has been a champion of the global drug control treaty system, which limits the use of marijuana exclusively to medical and scientific purposes, and obligates governments to punish and even criminalize recreational marijuana activity. But American attitudes toward marijuana policy are shifting: voters in Colorado and Washington approved ballot initiatives to legalize regulated recreational marijuana in 2012, and recent polls suggest that the majority of Americans think marijuana use should legalized. How might a shift in American marijuana policies affect the prohibitionist drug treaty system? What debates are taking place in other countries over marijuana policy?

On October 17, in collaboration with the Washington Office on Latin America, Governance Studies at Brookings will host a forum to discuss the international repercussions of the United States’ changing approach towards marijuana. A panel of experts will consider the possible ramifications for other countries and the international drug control regime.

After the program, speakers will take audience questions. This event will be live webcast.  Join the conversation on Twitter at #BIMJ.
