Lessons from cannabis regulation in Canada

2 June 2020

Transform and México Unido Contra la Delincuencia (MUCD) are pleased to invite you to our upcoming webinar on cannabis regulation in Canada, the second in a two-part series from Transform on lessons from cannabis regulation. This webinar celebrates the launch of our new report, ‘Capturing the Market: Cannabis regulation in Canada’.

This new report analyses how cannabis regulation has sought to protect public health, protect children and reduce criminality, from production through to retail. It addresses the development of good practice and highlights lessons for countries legally regulating cannabis in the near future, like Mexico.

Members of Transform and MUCD will be joined by Canadian experts Rebecca Jesseman, Nazlee Maghsoudi and Scott Bernstein on what has worked well and what needs to be improved in regulation going forward. Rebecca Jesseman is the Director of Policy at the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA), Nazlee Maghsoudi is Knowledge Translation Manager at the Centre on Drug Policy Evaluation, Scott Bernstein is Director of Policy at Canadian Drug Policy Coalition Tania Ramirez, the Director of Drug Policy at MUCD will also be joining the panel.

The webinar will include a presentation on the key findings of the report from Harvey Slade, Research and Policy Officer at Transform. Join us for this webinar on June 9th at 18:30 BST (13:30 ET).
