Nordic Summit on Cannabis | September 27th – 28th 2021
Let´s start changing things – before it is too late!
It is our pleasure to invite you to the [hybrid] Nordic Summit on Cannabis, held in Copenhagen 27-28th September 2021, hosted by WFAD, the Danish Network of Cannabis Treaters and Förbundet mot Rusgift. Due to changed COVID regulations, there are still in-person seats available for participants from the Nordic Region!
The Nordic Countries are taking seemingly invisible, but nonetheless, rhetorical steps towards a legalisation of cannabis.
We invite you to a two-day Nordic Summit on the effects of cannabis. This is a chance to steer in another direction, towards sound policies that take evidence into account – To protect the Nordic countries from the influence of biased and commercial arguments and to protect the developing brain of young people form the harmful effects of cannabis.
Over the two days you will be invited to hear from Nordic and international experts and researchers within the field, participate in discussions and partake in networking. During which, you will be provided with a “white guide” where the discussions and presentations of speakers are summarised, and which can be used by civil society and others who strive to push against this legalisation trend.
The Summit has successfully taken place. View the full programme here. During the Summit, a White Guide was disseminated. This guide contains research, reflections, and recommendations by our speakers and can be used in your [advocacy] work. The key takeaways have been summarised, which also includes access to some of the slides from the speakers. If you have not been able to attend the Summit, you can rewatch the different presentations online. Get access to the various documents below!
Forbundet Mot Rusgift
Forbundet Mot Rusgift (FMR), also The League Against Intoxicants (LAI), is a non-governmental, non-profit, voluntary organisation in Norway. Their objective is to mobilise people in the struggle against the dissemination and use of intoxicants, and the injuries and harm caused by those substances. LAI works through single members and supporters.
WFAD is a multilateral community of non-governmental organisations and individuals. We share a common concern that illicit drug use is undercutting traditional values and threatening the existence of stable families, communities, and government institutions throughout the world. Our aim is to work for a drug-free world.
