Abstract

A unique partnership between Queensland Police, James Cook University and peak bodies of remote Indigenous communities, including elected local government members, was recently formed to reduce cannabis-related harms in Cape York and Torres Strait in Far North Queensland.

To ensure proposed strategies are community owned and supported, an intensive six-month police-funded community and key stakeholder consultation phase was recently completed.
