Public health implications of legalising the production and sale of cannabis for medicinal and recreational use

Thursday, 24 October, 2019 - 10:50 to 12:20
Main stage


This paper summarises evidence for medicinal uses of opioids, and harms related to the extra-medical use of these drugs. We also summarise the evidence for a wide range of interventions to address harms related to extra-medical opioid use. Finally, we use mathematical modelling to explore the overall health benefits of drug treatment, in a range of settings with varying levels of opioid use and harms related to extra-medical use.
