After appointments as a Research Scientist at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) as well as a faculty member in the Department of Public Health Sciences and at the Centre of Criminology, University of Toronto, he joined the newly established Faculty of Health Sciences, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada, in 2008.

He has advised the World Health Organization on: the health effects of cannabis use; the effectiveness of drug substitution treatment; the scientific quality of the Swiss heroin trials; the contribution of illicit drug use to the global burden of disease; and the ethical implications of genetic and neuroscience research on addiction.. In 2001 he was identified by the Institute for Scientific Analysis as one of the world's most highly cited social scientists in the past 20 years.
