Inquiry into the Use of Cannabis in Victoria
All places for the Youth Forum are now filled. We thank you for your interest in the inquiry.
In Victoria, more young people use cannabis than any other age group. The Committee is inviting young people aged 18-25 to attend a workshop on Monday, 28 June 2021, and share their views on how cannabis policy in Victoria can be improved.
The workshop will discuss key issues including drug education, preventing harms from cannabis use and proposals to improve cannabis laws.
The information from the workshop will be used to help the Committee make recommendations to the Government about cannabis policy in Victoria. The session will involve group discussions on key issues raised in the inquiry:
How can we improve education about cannabis and other drugs in Victoria?
The impacts of cannabis use and how the Government can deliver better services
Cannabis and the law–how cannabis prohibition affects young people
Should cannabis be decriminalised and/or legalised in Victoria?
Date and time: Monday 28 June 2021, 11:00am to 1:30pm.
Venue: Parliament House (Legislative Council Committee Room), Spring Street, East Melbourne.
