Two years after its legalization, cannabis still raises questions and discussions. Although the substance is consumed by a relatively large proportion of the population, the potential dangers it presents to mental health are concerning. Fortunately, more and more specialists are able to answer our questions as knowledge about cannabis grows.

On October 7th, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Dr Didier Jutras-Aswad, director of the CHUM psychiatry department, Jean-Nicolas Proulx, social worker at the CHUM, and a patient partner will discuss mental health and cannabis during the new edition of HumaniSciences. The free activity does not require registration and will be held live on the CRCHUM Facebook page.
