2018 Marijuana Conference Montreal, QC,

April 26, 2018 - April 27, 2018

**This conference has been accredited for 15.25 hours of continuing legal education by a recognized provider.**

Price: Students: 25$. General admission: 100$

Organized by McGill’s Institute for Health and Social Policy, this conference is a chance to reflect on the broad societal implications and policy challenges of the Canadian federal government’s decision to legalize marijuana and to learn from the experience of states and jurisdictions that have undergone similar legislative change.

The conference will examine all aspects of the policy challenges that face Canada as it moves to legalize marijuana – from clinical considerations to do with health, to public safety, to Canada’s international legal obligations and the economic and political implications of legalization.

We will hear from academics, policy-makers and high-ranking government officials from Canada, Portugal and Uruguay.

Panelists will discuss themes such as Health Outcomes and Marijuana Legalization; Community Responses; Harm Reduction; and Marijuana Legalization: Economic Implications. The program is still being finalized.
