Cannabis Events

The Peterborough Drug Strategy is hosting focus groups to understand how you want to receive information about cannabis. Their purpose is to create a non-judgmental opportunity for people who use cannabis to share their thoughts about current health marketing and communications campaigns that have been developed since cannabis was legalized last year.

Stigma around cannabis use continues to be an issue despite its status as a legal, regulated product. Regardless of the specific substance, how we talk about substance use, including the language we use, is often stigmatizing.

The goal of these focus groups is to address the stigma that people may experience when discussing cannabis use in health care and social service settings. We will be using this feedback to train service providers in Peterborough on how they can reduce stigma in their setting so as to provide better, more inclusive services to the people they work with.

If you are unable to participate in our focus groups but are interested in providing us with feedback about cannabis, health messaging, and stigma, you can fill out our online survey here.
