ISSDP and UNODC Virtual Side Event at the 65th Commission on Narcotics Drugs meeting on the Policy Impact of Cannabis Legalization from a Scientific Perspective. Tuesday, 15 March 2022
The virtual side event explored scientific evidence on the implications of cannabis legalization. As of April 2021, legal provisions that allow the non-medical use of cannabis have been adopted in Canada, Uruguay and in 20 jurisdictions of the United States. The purpose of the discussion was to look at the complexities of the research evidence related to cannabis markets in these countries and assess to what extent this evidence can inform about the net impact of cannabis legalization. Factual evidence was discussed on a wide range of possible impacts, from public health-related to implications for other social phenomena.
