In this presentation, Dr. Nancy Carnide will provide a general overview of what we know (and don’t know) about cannabis use in working populations and describe recent findings of a survey study aimed at understanding changes in patterns of workplace cannabis use and the social norms and perceptions about such use among Canadian workers from pre- to post-legalization.

Take-home messages:

  • Cannabis use before and at work was already occurring in Canadian workplaces even before legalization
  • Nature of use among workers is complex, with workers citing many non-medical and medical reasons for use
  • There are important knowledge gaps that can be addressed by providing evidence-based information to workers
