Penington Institute is pleased to present a webinar looking at the relationship between community safety, the amenity of public spaces, and the legalisation and regulation of cannabis for social use.

In this webinar we will explore the safety implications of recreational cannabis such as driving and workplace impairment; how to manage public consumption; and the role of advertising and promotion in regulated cannabis markets.

We will be joined by an esteemed guest panel to discuss this topic including:

  • Dr Ryan Vandrey, Professor at Johns Hopkins University’s Behavioral Pharmacology Research Unit;
  • Andrew Livingston, Director of Economics and Research at Vicente LLP; and
  • Dr Gillian Schauer, Executive Director of the Cannabis Regulations Association.

The session will be facilitated by Penington Institute’s Global Partnership and Engagement Advisor, Rhys Cohen.

This webinar is part of our Global Perspectives on Australia’s Cannabis Future series, where we ask leading experts to share their cannabis policy insights from Australia and around the globe. Using real world examples and hard evidence, we will tackle the big questions as we consider an Australian policy model for legal, regulated cannabis use.
