What’s the best case scenario for cannabis users and for Canadian public health? Now that “when” is largely settled, this panel will explore the “how” of cannabis legalization in Canada.

2:30 PM MEDICAL VS. REC - SAFEGUARDING MEDICAL MARIJUANA AS LEGALIZATION UNFOLDS

The future is uncertain for most cannabis businesses in Canada. As business is conducted under medical auspices, will there be a pathway for these mom and pops to be part of the regulated system? Will legalization be the end of medical marijuana as we know it? Where do things stand with the ACMPR? Our panel of experts discusses the recent medical marijuana changes in Canada and what policies might lie ahead.
