The Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research, a collaboration between McMaster University and St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, is hosting its inaugural Innovations in the Science of Cannabis conference on February 9-10, 2018.  Brochure 

The event will feature researchers and clinicians from the Centre as well as institutions from across North America.
