Public Health Professor David Hammond and doctoral student Elle Wadsworth have developed a video mini-series chronicling the ins and outs of cannabis legalization in Canada. Recreational marijuana was legalized on October 17, and Canada is only the second country in the world to do so (after Uruguay).
"The videos were meant to be a summary of the cannabis legalization process in the run-up to the implementation of the policy," said Wadsworth. "We wanted to provide a resource for whoever wanted to learn more about the process – why cannabis was being legalized, what the industry thought about it, and more."
Each episode is between 10-12 minutes long:
The mini-series was supported by a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Catalyst Grant (Hammond), a CIHR-Public Health Agency of Canada Applied Chair in Public Health (Hammond) and a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship (Wadsworth). It was edited by Vince Harttrup.
