Illinois State’s Distinguished Professor in the Department of Criminal Justice Sciences Ralph Weisheit will give a presentation entitled “Marijuana: Policy Gone to Pot” at 4:30 p.m. in the Founders Suite of the Bone Student Center.

Weisheit has been researching illegal drugs and rural crime since the early 1980s. He is the author of eight books, including Domestic Marijuana (1992) and Methamphetamine: Its History, Pharmacology, and Treatment (2009). His recent scholarly work includes a new edition of the textbook Pursuing Justice (2015) and the research article “Rural Crime: A Global Perspective,” which was published last year in the International Journal of Rural Criminology.

Read a Q&A with Weisheit from the Redbird Scholar.
