Lower Risk Cannabis Use Guidelines
The Lower Risk Cannabis Use Guidelines (LRCUG) are an evidence-based public health intervention tool, allowing cannabis users to modify and reduce their risks for health harms by following scientifically grounded recommendations. The present work was led by Dr. Benedikt Fischer of the Ontario CRISM Node and a team of renowned addiction and health science experts. The 2017 guideline is the result of a comprehensive scientific update and revisions to the original guideline (from 2011) and was published in the American Journal of Public Health.
