Presentation: Peter Grema

Peter Grema (Honors College and Brookings Mountain West) recently was selected to present his summer internship research on "The Price of Legal Cannabis and Other Industry Policies" at the Summer 2019 Undergraduate Research Symposium earlier this month. Grema's research explores three distinct public policy areas wherein the legal U.S. cannabis industry is facing challenges. These issues relate to current banking, pricing, and entrepreneurial policies that hinder the growth of this nascent industry. Along with a brief history of federal marijuana laws and policies, he discussed recommendations at the local, state, and federal levels for each of the policy areas.

Grema is an undergraduate student in the Honors College and is pursing a major in economics. He is also a Brookings public policy minor and served as a summer intern with Brookings.
