Call for Racial Equity Impact Assessment of Cannabis Act

In an open letter to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Justice, Cannabis Amnesty called on the Canadian government to commit to undertaking a racial equity impact assessment as part of its three-year review of the Cannabis Act. The legislated three-year review of the Cannabis Act provides an opportunity for a critical assessment of the administration and operation of this watershed legislation and to enhance its potential to be a tool for racial equity.
