This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Danica provides a fact filled, passionate discussion about the pros and cons of legalization versus prohibition. She provides a very straight forward and composed look at the benefits of legalization of cannabis from the viewpoint of a married, female professional, non-user with a family. Her talk provides a great comparison between the prohibition of alcohol and the prohibition of cannabis.
Danica Noble is the Washington Coordinator for the NORML Women of Washington and an antitrust attorney. She lives in Seattle, Washington.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
