UCSF Tobacco Center has added a strong cannabis research group

As cannabis use has increasingly become legalized, commercialized and normalized understanding the health effects (both positive and negative) and what the appropriate public health responses and policies should be has become increasingly important.  In addition to its direct importance, there are important interactions between cannabis and tobacco, both biologically and at a policy level.  In recognition of these changes, the UCSF Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education has added a cannabis research focus group with 20 faculty.  Some have been working on tobacco for years, others are new.  Check out the people and range of research here:  https://tobacco.ucsf.edu/research-topics/551 .
