Decriminalization: beyond the buzzword
14 October 2020 @ 13 h 00 min - 15 h 00 min
Up to now, drug policies in Canada have failed to protect the health and human rights of people who use drugs. Criminalization puts, more than ever, people who use drugs at risk and contributes to their marginalization and oppression. As the country faces two major crises, establishing a public health and human rights approach to drugs is urgently needed to save lives.
In this webinar, four speakers will present different aspects and international models surrounding decriminalization of drug possession for personal use.
