Cannabis in Canada: Exploring this new reality

June 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm PDT

Last October, Canada became the second nation in the world to legalize cannabis for non-medical adult use. While cannabis use may be growing, there are still many myths and misperceptions.

Join M-J Milloy (Research Scientist at the BC Centre on Substance Use), Scott Bernstein (Director of Policy at the Canadian Drug Policy Coalition), and Stephanie Lake (Doctoral Candidate at the BC Centre on Substance Use) as we discuss:

What does legalization mean for Canadians?
Can cannabis play a role in addressing the overdose crisis?
Realistic and evidence-based cannabis education for youth
