Cannabis & Public Health: Forum Highlight Video

In May of 2017 I was the lead co-organizer of the public forum Cannabis Legalization in Canada: Implications for Public Health in Alberta, along with Peter Fenwick from the Canadian College of Health Leaders (Southern Alberta Chapter). The Forum was the first province-wide event to focus on cannabis and public health and attracted researchers, decision-makers, health professionals, as well as members of the public, medical cannabis users, and people working in or with the cannabis industry. I produced this highlight video to capture the best of the day, and all of the speaker talks and panels are posted on the O’Brien Institute for Public Health’s YouTube channel.
