Cannabis: It's Not Our Culture



Cannabis: It's Not Our Culture is a website hosted by the National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre (NCPIC), which provides information for community members and healthcare workers to help reduce the harms from cannabis use and showcases stories and artwork from Aboriginal communities.

Some information is presented in factsheets (which are available to download in pdf form), which focus on topics related to cannabis use and the impact it has on health.

NCPIC have undertaken community projects as a part of this umbrella project to develop health promotion strategies in remote towns in the Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria.
