WEBINAR: Legalizing cannabis – Clearing the smoke (March 8)

When: 8 March 2018, 12-1 p.m. ET

Presenter: Elaine Hyshka, Assistant Professor, School of Public Health, University of Alberta

Canada is poised to pass the Cannabis Act. But, is it just about providing legal access to the drug? Regulations that lessen the risks and enhance the benefits of legalization will be key to the success of the policy.



The Canadian Public Health Cannabis Webinar Series is focused on a range of issues related to cannabis consumption. It is imperative that Canadians are able to access unbiased and non-judgemental health information and support from their service providers. We have partnered with public health researchers and practitioners to present different views and work that is occurring across Canada. The goal of these webinars is to ensure that public health, health and social service providers in Canada are prepared to respond to the needs of people who use cannabis and other substances.
