In The Children’s Inquiry, Volteface examines how effectively the UK’s cannabis policies are safeguarding young people from harm to their wellbeing and life chances. This is explored through considering the practical consequences of canna¬bis policies on young people’s access to cannabis and the type of cannabis they are accessing, the impact this can have on their mental health and the support available to them, their interaction with the criminal justice system as users and dealers of cannabis, and who they and their families can turn to for information and guidance on cannabis.
