Thank you for visiting my online teaching and research portfolio. I’m a drugs policy researcher and Professor on the Criminal Justice degree at Humber College in Toronto, Canada. My work focuses on drugs policy, with an emphasis on both cannabis and harm reduction. I also studying policing of drugs and community policing practices.

This site contains links to some of my previous research, some teaching materials, and a bit more information about me. You can also contact me.

I’m currently working on two major projects:

Have you ever grown cannabis? Take our survey on cannabis growing practices! Your data is completely anonymized and we take every measure to protect your data. We’ll use the info to help policy makers better understand cannabis growing so they can make better policies.

How do young people engage with cannabis-related public education materials? We’ve wrapped data collection on the Engaging and Educating Young-Adult Cannabis Consumers project, but you can learn more and see updates at www.cannabiseducationresearch.ca.
