2013 international drug symposium cannabis and health banner

Through the Maze: Cannabis and Health International Drug Policy Symposium brought together some of the best minds about cannabis and health from around the world for three days in Auckland, New Zealand from 27-29 November 2013.

In 1993 the New Zealand Drug Foundation held our first Cannabis and Health conference. Over the past 20 years a lot has changed and a lot has stayed the same.

Questions around cannabis constantly cause confusion. It’s easy to get lost in the maze of issues around the world’s most widely used illicit drug. That’s why we’re putting on an international Symposium around cannabis and health to address the real health, policy and research issues around cannabis.
