Medicinal cannabis and psychoactive plants (and related substances) for mental health and addiction

This one-day research forum took place on Friday 28 June at the University of Melbourne and was hosted by the School of Social and Political Science and Department of Psychiatry, in partnership with the Penington Institute (please see the event flyer (380kb pdf)). The event brought together invited researchers, policy makers and regulators working across mental health, addiction and medicines regulation to hear from eminent local and international researchers on the potential use of cannabinoids and medicinal psychedelics in the treatment of psychiatric and substance use disorders.
