Survey: What Do Cannabis Users Want When It Comes to Law Reform?

The last five years have seen sweeping changes in cannabis regulation across the world. From budding entrepreneurs and green-fingered corporates to social clubs and whole sale cannabis reform, the waft of change is upon us across whole countries and states.

While most governments seek advice and opinion from legal and policy experts, few have sought the explicit input of those who may reasonably be expected to be most impacted by law change—people who use cannabis for pleasure. As always, Global Drug Survey (GDS) thinks  that people who use drugs often have an expert view that both defies expectation in its depth and thoughtfulness and which can inform drug policy in ways that are commonly overlooked by those seeking to implement legal reform.

So this year, we thought why not ask cannabis users around the world how they would like to see cannabis regulated in their country.

With expert input on the design of this specialist section from Professors Alex Stevens at Kent University and Steve Rolles from Transform, GDS will conduct the biggest consultation of cannabis users in the world. So in the second part of the GDS2017 (after a 20-minute core survey), you will be given the choice to tell us how you want cannabis regulated in your country.

From want can be sold and by who, to restrictions on THC content, age, advertising and minimum pricing, we’ll be asking the questions that matter.

Do you want shop fronts or on-line markets; do you want limits on personal use or the number of plants you can grow? And for those people who are already living in places with reformed cannabis laws, we’ll ask what difference it made to you, in terms of stigma, help seeking and levels of use.

Anonymous and confidential, GDS2017 will be the biggest drug survey of all time. We’ll share the results with everyone in May 2017. So put your spliff down, make a cup of tea and go HERE now.

Dr. Adam R. Winstock is the founder of Global Drug Survey and a consultant psychiatrist.
