  • Articles and reports: 82-003-X201900600001
    Description:

    The Canadian federal government legalized non-medical cannabis use by adults in October 2018. Ongoing monitoring of the effects of the change is needed because uncertainty remains about the impact of this legislation on cannabis use behaviours and whether the impact will affect some more than others. This study used data from Canadian Alcohol and Drugs Survey and its predecessor to examine longer-term historical rates of use during 2004 to 2017. Five iterations of National Cannabis Surveys (2018/2019) were used to examine current use (overall, daily/almost daily, quantities, and types of products) in the months before and after legalization.

    Description:

    This Juristat article examines a cohort of individuals who died of an illicit drug overdose in the province of British Columbia, with a special focus on the City of Surrey, between 2011 and 2016, and explores the nature and extent of their contact with the criminal justice system as a person accused of a crime. This analysis brings together data provided by the British Columbia Coroners Service with policing data from the Uniform Crime Reporting Survey, and criminal court data from the Integrated Criminal Court Survey. Identifying the primary risk factors and those at greatest risk of preventable illicit drug-related deaths will help support the development of evidence-informed interventions, precision programming and policies aimed at preventing future overdoses and saving lives.

    Findings from a new report indicate that those dying from preventable illicit drug overdoses in British Columbia are a diverse population. This group encompasses people that have no touch points with either the hospital, employment, social income assistance or justice systems in the years prior to fatal overdose. Yet at the opposite end of the spectrum, it also comprises individuals who have multiple touch points with at least one of these systems.
