Cannabis & The FilipinX Community
July 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0Free
NICHE CANADA will host a new dialogue series focused on bringing evidence based cannabis education and grounded dialogue to various ethno-cultural communities in Canada. They will discuss and break down the Cannabis Act and legalization from a public health perspective, also, they will highlight the experiences of FilipinX community members, and how culture and history intersect with perceptions about cannabis, finally, they will explore opportunities to engage with and pacticipate in the developing cannabis space. Historically and culturally, cannabis has been taboo topic among Filipinx. However, with many Filipinx working in the industries that will be impacted by cannabis legalization (e.g., healthcare, hospitality, food and service, etc.) edication is imperative. Our aim is for the audience to walk away with a greater understanding of cannabis and the laws, in order to promote evidence based community conversations, empowerment int heir knowledge and to encourage them to explore potential ways they can get involved
