Abstract/Summary This study aimed to compare the social impacts of the two main models found in Australia for dealing with minor cannabis offences: total prohibition, and prohibition with civil penalties. In addition, it sought to evaluate in detail the operation and acceptability of an existing expiation scheme for minor cannabis offences, South Australia’s Cannabis Expiation Notice (CEN) scheme. One of the main questions underlying the investigation was whether the reduction in criminal penalties that accompanies an expiation approach might lead to differing social consequences for offenders and for the community as a whole.
