National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP) - Cannabis and Public Health Webinar

Location: General, Canada

The commercialization and promotion of cannabis use is a key concern within the public health community as Canada moves toward legalization. The report of the Task Force on Cannabis Legalization and Regulation proposed several initiatives to address this concern.

INSPQ has also recently published a report presenting additional non-profit models for distribution. The webinar will provide an opportunity for public health partners in Canada to discuss and learn more about public health-oriented regulatory options within a legalized approach to non-therapeutic cannabis.

Objectives

  • Increase awareness and understanding of options for non-profit distribution of cannabis.
  • Provide a platform supporting discussion among key public health stakeholders in Canada.

Audience

  • Public-health stakeholders in Canada

Speakers

  • François Gagnon, Ph.D., Research Officer, Centre de collaboration nationale sur les politiques publiques et la santé et Institut national de santé publique du Québec
