A Public Health Approach to Non-Medical Cannabis

POSTED: September 21, 2018 | Mayors Blog

As District of Stewart Council will adopt few by-laws at the coming meeting, I want to share with citizens the letter from the Northern Health. I feel that this is a very important matter for many people, living in Stewart and Council should consider Health Authorities recommendations.

Multiple sectors of society, and all levels of government, have roles to play in a comprehensive public health approach to cannabis legalization. Local governments, in particular, can adopt regulations aimed at reducing youth exposure to non-medical cannabis, high-risk use in general (e.g., heavy or frequent use, use with other substances), and unwanted exposure to second-hand cannabis smoke and vapour. Local governments can also support increasing public knowledge and awareness, to support risk reduction and destigmatization, without normalization or promotion. Local U]dS`\[S\bal Xc`WaRWQbW]\ W\ h]\W\U' ZO\R caS' PcaW\Saa ZWQS\aW\U' PcWZRW\U Q]RSa' \cWaO\QS by-laws, and enforcement, as well as their ability to advocate to higher levels of government, can all be leveraged to promote a public health approach to cannabis.4 Some specific areas of best practice5 where local governments can support a public health approach include:
