Legalizing cannabis - Clearing the smoke

Canada is poised to pass the Cannabis Act. But, is it just about providing legal access to the drug?

In our next This is Public Health lecture series, Assistant Professor Elaine Hyshka will discuss what the Act means for Canadians, and the additional steps needed to protect public health.
