DR. DANIEL BEAR BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Daniel Bear is a drug policy expert with nearly 20 years of experience studying how we use drugs, why we use drugs, and how we regulate drugs. His research spans many areas of drugs policy and Dr. Bear has done everything from working alongside terminally ill patients as they grew an acre of medical cannabis, to spending a year alongside police in London as they raided cannabis grow ops.

Throughout his research Dr. Bear has looked not just at drugs themselves but how responses to drug issues impact both the targeted groups and the organizations and agents tasked with implementing the responses. In his published work for academic journals, appearances on radio, and television, and in op/ed pieces, Dr. Daniel Bear manages to make a very complex topic accessible to all.

Dr. Daniel Bear has a Ph.D. and MSc in Social Policy from The London School of Economics and Political Science, where he studied what drove street-level policing of drugs and the resulting impact on communities of colour. Dr. Bear earned his BA in Sociology from the University of California at Santa Cruz.

He has held positions with the American Civil Liberties Union and the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General and sat on advisory committees of the British Society of Criminology and the Drug Policy Alliance. He has consulted on criminal justice reform issues for the UK’s Ministry of Justice, the BBC, and several non-profit organizations.

Dr. Daniel Bear is currently a Professor in the Faculty of Social and Community Services at Humber College in Toronto where he leads nationally-funded research examining how to better engage young people with public health information about drugs.

U.S. President Bill Clinton's embrace of the drug war and mandatory minimum sentencing is an example of this, but for many in the drug policy community there was a quiet tension leading up to today's release of the report from the Task Force on Cannabis Legalization and Regulation. Would the report ordered by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government propose to legalize...
