CCSA's Focus on Cannabis
Cannabis is the second most commonly used substance in Canada, after alcohol. On October 17, 2018, Canada became the second country in the world to legalize and regulate the sale and use of cannabis and cannabis products. Understanding the impacts of cannabis is essential to minimize the risks and harms and to maximize the benefits of its use. For that reason, CCSA conducts research, brings together knowledge and provides targeted materials to support evidence-based decisions and actions for cannabis policy and practice.
