Cannabis Legalization - Reefer Madness Recap

October 17th, 2018 is truly a historic day for Thunder Bay, and the remaining provinces in Canada. If you didn't hear, we held our Reefer Madness event celebrating the legalization of Cannabis! 

Speakers such as Cynthia Olsen from Thunder Bay Drug Strategy spoke about the current provincial laws for cannabis. She also spoke on the consumer information handout from the federal government and the lower risk cannabis use guidelines.

Deborah Sharf, a professor at Lakehead University provided us with a slideshow discussing cannabis advertising issues and adolescent health. Deborah also touched on other psychosocial determinants of cannabis use and used her psychologist's perspective when touching upon evidence-based treatments for managing a cannabis dependence syndrome.
Last but not least, John Reesor, a cannabis activist for many years and someone who has personally observed the war on drugs spoke about history and early uses of cannabis. John also touched on the prohibition and the do’s and dont's of responsible cannabis use. 

Patty Hajdu, in video form kicked off the night by introducing the discussion session. After the questions were asked and answered by the panel, Gaelynn Lea gifted us with a beautiful musical performance playing her original music.

Our feature film of the night Reefer Madness- colourized was played to wrap up the session and added the perfect touch of comedy. If you missed our screening of Reefer Madness, or wanted to hear more about Cynthia Olsen from Thunder Bay Drug strategies resources, visit the links below!
