Canadian Cannabis Awards 2017

By |

Entering its fourth year, the CCAs are Canada’s premier cannabis awards.

This is the CCAs’ fourth year, and its first gala. The awards have grown alongside the industry, born from the desire to highlight the tremendous people, products and producers in Canadian cannabis. The CCAs started as a small, but influential online platform in 2014. Each year we’ve added new awards categories, reflecting—and increasingly, influencing— the dynamism of the evolving cannabis sector.

The Canadian cannabis sector is predicted to be a $22 billion economy, with growth rates on par with broadband internet in the early 2000s, and cable in the 1990s. At Lift, we believe it’s high time that our awards reflect the magnitude of this effort and the importance of this economic contribution. That’s why we’re proud to bring you the first CCA gala, celebrating a year of firsts, with many more to come

Legalizing & Regulating Cannabis in Saskatchewan

By |

Regina: Room 210, 2 Research Drive, University of Regina
Saskatoon: Prairie Room, Diefenbaker Centre Canada, University of Saskatchewan

Join us for this panel presentation!
Cynthia Bojkovsky, Phd Candidate, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy
Jason Childs, Associate Professor, Department of Economics, University of Regina
George Hartner, Lecturer, Department of Economics, University of Regina
Kathleen McNutt, Executive Director, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy
Moderated by Dale Eisler, Senior Policy Fellow, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy
On July 1, 2018 the production, distribution and sale of cannabis will be legal in Canada. The Government of Canada’s decision to legalize and regulate was driven by three core objectives: 1. Dismantle the illicit market; 2. Restrict youth access; & 3. Minimize harm. In very short order provincial governments have to develop policy regimes and in some instances without the necessary evidence typically required to ensure effectiveness. In response to the upcoming cannabis legalization the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy has prepared a report outlining policy options titled, “Legalizing and Regulating Cannabis in Saskatchewan.” Join us for a discussion to see what the policy options are for cannabis legislation in Saskatchewan.

Dispensaries ARE Indispensable

By |

this is a protest to highlight the ongoing raids of medical cannabis dispensaries around the province thereby limiting patients access to their medicine. The province of Nova Scotia should legitimize medicinal cannabis dispensaries and regulate them, rather than solely endorsing a corporate model. This is but one of the potential atrocities that we can expect to see in politician’s current version of legalization that will negatively impact on the health and safety of critically and chronically ill patients!
