It’s no secret that the opioid epidemic has taken the lives of many. A new study conducted by criminal justice professor Jamie Flexon and her colleagues Lisa Stolzenberg and Stewart D’Alessio examines this epidemic through the lens of recent cannabis laws and their effect on opioid use.
The study, entitled "Low Self-Control and Environmental Harm: A Theoretical Perspective and Empirical Test," appears in the American Journal of Criminal Justice. Dr. Meldrum and Dr. Pires collaborated with the students to produce the study.
