Cannabis is one of the most popular recreational drugs of Canadians, along with alcohol and tobacco. Like those drugs, cannabis is associated with a variety of health harms. But prohibition hasn’t reduced its use or lessened its harms but has, instead, worsened the health harms and created costly social ones. In our latest Research Report Round-up, we provide a summary of the cannabis policy framework released in October 2014 by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. This report presents conclusions based on a review of the evidence on cannabis control and measures aimed at reducing harm.
You can read the full report on the EENet website. Research Report Round-ups are brief summaries of research reports, presented in a user-friendly format.
