Cannabis is one of the longest-established and most commonly used illicit drug in Europe, with nearly 20 % of those in the 15-24 age group reporting having used cannabis in the last year. Internationally and within Europe, cannabis use continues to be a topic that generates significant policy and public interest, as new developments are triggering a debate on how society should respond to this substance. Recognising the current dynamic and complex nature of the cannabis policy sphere, this session seeks to present the latest evidence and analysis from studies that review the medical use of cannabis and cannabinoids; cannabis effects and harms; treatment for cannabis-related disorders and cannabis-related harm reduction interventions.
