About this series: The fourteen (14) part series provides the underpinning for professionals and advocates who need a core understanding of prevention science and practice. The series will include training in the eight domains required for Ohio Certified Prevention Consultant (OCPC), Ohio Certified Prevention Specialist (OCPS) credentials and will fully meet the education requirements for the Ohio Certified Prevention Specialist Assistant (OCPSA) credential. The series includes a day on the Code of Ethics for professionals holding or seeking the OCPS credential as well.

About this course: Marijuana:  The Law and Lessons Learned About Legalization focuses on Ohio’s legalization process and the impact it has on businesses, agencies, communities, and families.  The Ohio Medical Marijuana Program became fully operational on September 28, 2018.  Twenty-four cultivation sites are growing a steady supply of marijuana and sixty regionally dispersed dispensaries supply marijuana to adults and children for pre-determined medical conditions.  As marijuana is now legal and readily available, perceptions of harm decrease and use across the lifespan, including youth, increases.  With so much distorted information about this drug in the popular cultural, it is important to educate, advocate and empower communities in the climate of legalized marijuana.
