The Indigenous Community Action to Reduce Harms Associated With Heavy Cannabis Use in Remote Communities in the Cape York Region project aimed to identify the full extent of cannabis use and the impact of that use on communities in the Cape York region of Queensland and Torres Strait Islands.
The Cape York Cannabis Project was facilitated by James Cook University (JCU), and aimed to work with remote communities in Cape York, Queensland (Qld) to reduce the demand of cannabis.
