Should drugs be decriminalized in Canada?

Sociology professor Dr. Andrew Hathaway from the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences offered his ideas to Global News for how decriminalization could work in Canada.

“It’s a good idea to institute this at a larger level,” Hathaway said. “…I think to have some level of coordination and have it enacted on a federal scale certainly makes sense.”

A professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Hathaway teaches in the criminal justice and public policy program and researches drug policy including harm reduction policies, drug normalization trends and policy development.
