We've got a brand new #SPEforum series coming up this summer - we're bringing experts from the scientific, social, industry, and policy perspectives together to talk about on #cannabis & #opioids in #Canada! Tickets (free!) available for the third and final forum - all details below.

Opioids have touched so many around the world - and for many Canadians they mean relief from acute or chronic pain. For others, it means addiction, loss, and even death. Do opioids still have a place in 2018, when other pain relievers exist? How do they work, and why are they prescribed? What methods do we have to prevent or treat addiction? Most importantly, how can we make sure Canadians are kept safe by well-informed policies? This forum will answer these questions, and our expert panelists will be there to answer yours. Lots of time will be allocated to Q&A with the panel, so we hope you'll attend and join the conversation!

Event will be at BanQ library, 475 Boulevard de Maisonneuve in #Montreal (Berri entrance), August 29 @ 6pm, and it will be live-streamed on Facebook Live.
