On November 5, 1996, California became the first state in the US to legalize Marijuana for medical purposes through the enactment of the Compassionate Use Act of 1996. Later Marijuana for recreational use was also enacted through the Adult Use of Marijuana Act of 2016. Presently, 29 States in the U.S including the District of Columbia have legalized the use of marijuana for either medicinal or recreational purposes (Election 2016–Marijuana Ballot results). With the legalization of Marijuana, there have been tremendous higher rates of distribution, sales, and consumption of the drug in California. The use of Marijuana has not only been socially accepted but has also laid a foundation for more research about the social economic and health effects to the communities. Therefore this paper seeks to assess the detrimental and beneficial effects of marijuana use among the racial/ ethnically diverse population of northern California.
