Research Fields: 
Marketing and Prevention

Dr. Schmidt is working on how medical cannabis laws are impacting young people nationally, as well as California-specific work on shaping local policies, and the locations of outlets in low-income communities that are already densely populated with liquor outlets. Her work tracks alcohol-cannabis substitution and uses community-engaged approaches to bring evidence-to-policy around alcohol and cannabis at the local and state levels.
