|Résumé :||In October 2014 the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Canada's largest academic health science centre devoted to mental illness and substance use (Rehm et al., 2011), released a Cannabis Policy Framework (CAMH, 2014). An interdisciplinary expert group from across CAMH's clinical and research (both brain science and social/epidemiological research) programs studied the evidence around cannabis-related harm, existing models of cannabis control, and public health approaches to substance use. Following nearly a year of debate, the group came to a consensus on the position outlined in the Cannabis Policy Framework: that legalisation, in conjunction with strict health-focused regulation, appears to be the most effective means of reducing the harms associated with cannabis use (CAMH, 2014).
