Launch of the Portuguese version of the publication "How to Regulate Cannabis: A Practical Guide," material that is an international reference produced by the British organization Transform Drug Policy Foundation and now available in Brazil through the JUSTA Platform.

The guide systematizes the key lessons learned from prior cannabis legislation implementations around the world, highlighting the best solutions and challenges encountered.

In Brazil, there are essentially two significant worries about the issue: the potential of corporate domination of the regulatory process and the lack of priority given to the agendas of social justice and historical reparation.

These are the worries that JUSTA hopes to alleviate with the release of the Brazilian edition.
