The legalization of cannabis has a whole other meaning for mental health and addiction professionals. While professional organization haven't reached a clear consensus about cannabis legalization, you'll soon be faced by clients who are actively and legally using cannabis (if you haven't already.) Are you prepared to support these clients?
