Abstract

Hall & Kozlowski outline diverging trajectories of cannabis and tobacco regulation in the United States towards legalized commercial cannabis markets and prohibitionist tobacco policies, respectively. They also raise legitimate concerns about the lack of cross‐substance learning regarding, for example, the public health risks of for‐profit models. This commentary considers the international implications of Hall & Kozlowski's analysis. Specifically, it asks: are the diverging trajectories and barriers to cross‐substance learning in the United States reflective of a global trend in cannabis and tobacco regulation?
