About this event

We invite you to attend the International Cannabis Toolkit Workshop on 22nd October in Lisbon (before LxAddictions). Cannabis products continue to diversify as legal medical and recreational markets expand worldwide. These products vary considerably in THC and CBD concentrations, methods of administration and across different countries. A key problem facing the field is the lack of standardized, validated measures of cannabis use (akin to standard alcohol units). This severely limits our ability to synthesize findings across research studies, to develop guidelines and policies for safer use, and to manage cannabis in treatment settings. This project will bring together an interdisciplinary panel of experts from distinct world regions alongside Lisbon Addictions 2019. The aims are to:  (i)              Identify and disseminate key challenges in measuring cannabis use from an international and multidisciplinary perspective   (ii)             Launch the development of an international cannabis toolkit, a standardized, internationally relevant tool for measuring cannabis use in research and policy Confirmed speakers Dr Jamie Brown, University College London, UK Dr Alvero Castillo-Carniglia, Universidad Mayor, Chile Professor Jonathan Caulkins, Carnegie Mellon University, USA Dr Janna Cousijn, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands Professor Val Curran, University College London, UK Professor Antonio Gual, Clinic Hospital of Barcelona, Spain  Dr Suzi Gage, University of Liverpool, UK Dr Teodora Groshkova, EMCDDA    Professor Mahmoud ElSohly, University of Mississippi, USA   Professor Wayne Hall, University of Queensland, Australia Dr Margriet Van Laar, Trimbos Institute, The Netherlands Dr Will Lawn, University College London, UK Dr Ryan Vandrey, Johns Hopkins, USA Elle Wadsworth, University of Waterloo, Canada More to be added soon...
