Racial (in)justice and cannabis

2021-01-21 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

No discussion of cannabis can be adequately situated and addressed without carefully considering the criminalization of cannabis as well as the legacy it leaves. Like most other areas of society, structural and systemic racism have both historically and presently impacted cannabis policy and use, an issue that we wish to explore more deeply. By reflecting on the historical impacts of cannabis policy, we hope to discuss a new way forward that considers the intersections of cannabis use, mental health, and anti-racism efforts in policy, programs and resources.This event is co-hosted by Cannabis & Psychosis, YouthREX and Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy.
