Cannabis legalization: A policy primer


The winds of change are sweeping across the country as federal and provincial law- and policymakers work together to legalize and regulate cannabis. Once new systems for sale and distribution are in place, Canadians may soon see the tapering green leaves of cannabis plants in neighbors’ windows, or jars of edibles on local shelves. Statistics on the benefits and risks associated with cannabis will likely find their way to more and more news feeds.   

Because legalization has complex implications for public health and safety, policymakers are seeking reliable, research-based information as they make policy decisions and plan for the future.

In this e-book, you'll find a summary of the Cannabis Evidence Series, a comprehensive research report written for the Alberta government officials who are drafting legalization policies. It contains five steps for understanding legalization, so you can stay informed as policy evolves.
