The Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor Dr Juliet Gerard put together an expert panel to summarise and critique the evidence to help people make up their mind on how to vote.

This video overview features leading scientists giving a diverse perspective on the state of the research. Amongst them feature Dr Irene Braithwaite (MRINZ Deputy Director), and two of our Medicinal Cannabis Programme collaborators, Professor Giles Newton-Howes (Consultant Psychiatrist), and Professor Joseph Boden (Director of the Christchurch Health and Development Study), who is also on the Prime Ministers Expert Panel on Cannabis.
