Who should attend?
Stop smoking advisors, drug workers, teachers and social workers encounter cannabis use more frequently than any other controlled drug. Despite this many workers feel under confident when addressing cannabis use. Some workers may not feel that cannabis use is an issue, while other may believe that there is little scope for education, harm reduction or addressing dependency.
