In October 2018, federal legislation comes into force which authorises Canadian provinces and territories to establish mechanisms for the sale of recreational marijuana. Legalisation ends almost a century of near criminal prohibitions related to marijuana and makes Canada just the second country in the world to fully legalise cannabis. It has been estimated that the marijuana industry will be worth between $5 and $7 billion and in just a matter of weeks this fledgling industry becomes subject to regulation at the federal, provincial and municipal levels, and begins impacting many facets of Canadians everyday lives, and Canadian lawyers' everyday practice.
This seminar addresses some of the issues faced by various practice areas and offers insights from a Public Policy, Provincial Government and Law Enforcement perspective.
