Presenters are chosen based on their expertise on particular content related to this course. Pete is the CEO of the California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals (CCAPP). CCAPP is the largest legislative advocacy organization for addiction relation issues in CA and the largest Alcohol and Drug Counselor Certifying Organization. Pete and I will recap some of the major historical points of drug legislation, how it has led to current discriminatory practices and mass incarceration and how some of the historical attitudes toward substance use are still with us today.
