Event: Legalisation Of Cannabis In Uruguay – A Positive Step?

Transform's Danny Kushlick and Lisa Sánchez will be taking part in an event held at Canning House on 13 February at 18:30. Tickets can be purchased here.

Event description

Uruguay has become the first country in the world to make it legal to grow, sell and consume cannabis following the success of the 'responsible regulation' campaign. Undoubtedly a landmark occasion and a momentous step, most significantly in the region's longstanding battle against drug cartels, but will the outcome be positive or negative?

Our expert panel will discuss this important issue. It includes, Danny Kushlick, Head of External Affairs at Transform Drug Policy Foundation and co-author of After the War on Drugs: Options for Control (2004); Lisa Sánchez, Latin America Programme Manager based in Mexico City for Mexico Unido Contra la Delincuencia; and John Everard, former UK Ambassador to Uruguay (2001 - 2005).
