In states like Colorado, where marijuana is legal, Surgeon General Jerome Adams says the potency of today’s marijuana may be a detriment to business investment and worker efficacy. “There is no such thing as medical marijuana,” he says. Adams also shares his concerns for black communities, “adding a marijuana dispensary to the mix” on street corners won’t fix our social justice ills, he says.

This conversation was recorded during Aspen Ideas: Health in Aspen, Colorado. Presented by the Aspen Institute, the three-day event opens the Aspen Ideas Festival and features more than 200 speakers engaging with urgent health care challenges and exploring cutting-edge innovations in medicine and science.
