The need to hear a range of expert perspectives on illicit substance use and/or addiction, e.g., public supply of addictive drugs (PSAD; also known as ‘safe supply’), decriminalization, or legalization, is key to developing policies that can address their social, health, and economic consequences. This online event will examine and allow for the full and transparent consideration of challenges, possible unintended consequences and concerns as we consider drug policy reforms.
