Raising the Bar is back for a third round! The University of Auckland is proud to once again host this unique event in which our academics give free public lectures in pubs and bars.

Join Benedikt Fischer for Cannabis Legalisation: A Potentially Mind-altering Discussion.

Nothing will divide a room quite like one of the country’s burning issues of the moment – so strap in for a potentially mind-altering discussion about the pros and cons, and additional considerations, of cannabis legalisation.

With the cannabis policy referendum looming, the country is scrambling to get to grips about what New Zealand’s best options are for cannabis control.

Benedikt will discuss different models of cannabis legalisation, regulatory options for use and supply control, and potential consequences of legalisation.

What are the short and long term health effects of cannabis use? How would we best reduce cannabis-related health harms under legalisation? What will legalisation mean for young people?

Benedikt will discuss what we know, what we don’t know and what we urgently need to know in this revealing, science-based talk.

Want to be well-informed for the impending referendum? Then don’t miss this empowering discussion.

Registrations essential.
