Infant-Toddler Court Teams: Supporting Foster Families in the Time of Opioids

Today, more than 30 states and territories have chosen to legalize cannabis either recreationally or medicinally, representing the views of over two-thirds of Americans. Moreover, this has translated to over 211,000 jobs in these states and territories,
with 64,000 of those jobs added in 2018 alone.[1] This is a growing industry and will only continue to add employment opportunities for Americans in these
states and territories. While we should be encouraging all Americans to participate in legal employment, recently we have seen a growing number of examples of cannabis employees penalized for their participation in the industry. This is particularly the case
for legal permanent residents who make up part of the 211,000 cannabis workers but are being denied their ability to naturalize because of it. As states with legal cannabis seek to grow and regulate their industry, we should be supporting these employment
opportunities instead of hampering a growing job producer due to inconsistent federal laws.
