Dr. Andy Hathaway, a drug policy researcher in the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences, discussed cannabis use and drug decriminalization on several radio shows.
On air with CBC Radio’s Alberta at Noon, Hathaway discussed whether cannabis has become culturally normalized since its legalization, before commenting on and answering listeners’ questions.
On The Mike Farwell Show on CityNews 570, Hathway examined how B.C. can successfully implement its drug decriminalization plan and whether it will help reduce stigma around drug use.
A professor in the criminal justice and public policy program in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Hathaway researches drug use in marginalized and mainstream populations and its implications for social policy development.
