Cannabis Legalization and the Cannabis Act, 2017
Speaker: Elliot Pobjoy, Associate, Goodmans LLP
Municipalities throughout Ontario are preparing for the legalization of cannabis products to come into effect later this year. This far reaching policy change has significant implications for municipalities across Ontario and Canada. The Provincial Government recently enacted the Cannabis Act, 2017, which prescribes the regulatory framework for the lawful use and distribution of cannabis as a controlled substance within Ontario. In addition, the Province has identified municipalities that will host the first 40 cannabis retail outlets in 2018. This session will involve a panel presentation to discuss the potential implications that this Act, and other related issues, will have on municipal enforcement staff in this province and will include a discussion of potential strategies to help municipalities respond.
