Looking through the Kaleidoscope of Cannabis: Presumptions, Policy and Practice

February 10, 2020 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Youth have the highest rates of cannabis use in Ontario: one in five Grade 7-12 students and 38% of young adults aged 18-29 use cannabis, compared to 14.5 of all adults.

  • How can we support young people to make informed decisions about cannabis use?
  • What does the rapidly-changing legislation and commercialisation of cannabis mean for youth?
  • How can youth workers draw from the best available evidence around the health and social impacts of cannabis in their work with young people?

YouthREX in collaboration with East Metro Youth Services and the York Research Chair in Youth and Contexts of Inequity is hosting a livestream of a Keynote Presentation by Dr. Oyedeji Ayonrinde, a leading scholar on youth mental health and cannabis literacy.
