logo emcddaEMCDDA webinars resume after the summer break with four sessions dedicated to the theme of cannabis. The first of these, 8 October 2021, will focus on the health and social responses to cannabis problems in Europe, ahead of the publication of a new set of miniguides. The next three webinars will focus on low-THC products and medical and recreational use.

Objective: To kick off the cannabis webinar series, opening the debate with an all-encompassing overview of the key issues and response options available.


Cannabis is the most widely used illicit drug in Europe and globally. As well as herbal cannabis and cannabis resin, an increasing range of more novel forms of the drug may now be observed on the illicit market. Regulatory responses are also becoming more variable and complicated, while most health and social concerns still remain focused on illicit cannabis consumption. Effective prevention programmes generally take a developmental perspective and are not substance-specific. Treatment for cannabis problems is based mainly on psychosocial approaches with an increasing focus on digital interventions. Harm reduction for cannabis use has received less attention.

This webinar will involve a discussion with key stakeholders in the following areas:

  • cannabis use and harms
  • cannabis treatment programmes
  • harm reduction interventions

The EMCDDA introductory message will refer to the upcoming launch of the Health and social responses to drug problems: a European guide 2021. The new modular guide, updating the 2017 one-volume edition, is designed to support practitioners and policymakers in tackling the negative consequences of drug use. To be launched in October, it will take the form of a set of miniguides released in three successive bundles covering: drugs, settings and target groups.

Chairperson: To be confirmed

Opening and closing remarks: Alexis Goosdeel

Format: EMCDDA opening remarks, guided discussion with panellists, Q&A with attendees.

Length: 1.5 hours

Participants: The webinar is open to EMCDDA staff members, the Reitox network and external individuals. Participation is possible upon registration, after which you will receive a link to connect.
