Separate fact from fiction.

The legalization of marijuana is an enormous change for Canadians. The impact has had a cascading effect across law enforcement, education, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and legal services.

Legalization also represents new opportunities for scientific research to help us understand how cannabis works and how it effects those who consume it.

University of Calgary Continuing Education is collaborating with McMaster University Centre for Continuing Education and their partners, the Peter Boris Centre for Addictions Research and the Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research to promote The Science of Cannabis program to our students.

Upon successful completion of three online courses, students will receive a Certificate of Completion from McMaster University.
