The New Cannabis Landscape 2018

By |

The place of cannabis marijuana in the lives of Canadians will undergo a radical change with its legalization and entry into the mainstream.

This transformation will affect Canada’s legal landscape, and the new status of cannabis will have profound implications in many areas of practice including (but not limited to): civil litigation, criminal law, municipal law, health law, insurance law, labour and employment law, business law, and corporate finance.

If you practice in an area of law which has a significant cannabis marijuana dimension, you need this program!

Day One

  • Receive an overview including cannabis marijuana basics (botany and pharmacology), the history of cannabis in Canada and globally, the proposed federal Cannabis Act and regulations, the proposed BC regulations, and the impact on local government.

Day Two

  • “Cannabis as Medicine”: examine the evolution of cannabis marijuana from a controlled drug to a regulated health care product, as well as the current issues in discourse surrounding medical cannabis.
  • “Cannabis and Impairment”: explore the twin issues of regulation and measurement of potential impairment caused by cannabis in both the criminal law and employment law contexts.
  • “Cannabis and Business—The Ultimate Joint Venture”: review the major issues that arise when advising cannabis-related business including business regulation, investment and finance, insurance, and cross-border issues.

The Good Vibes Tour

By |


On June 1, 2018, Mat and Ali will be embarking on The Good Vibes Tour; a self propelled, coast-to-coast cycling crusade to celebrate Canada’s legalization of cannabis, cultivate positive social awareness and most importantly, spread good vibes.

We believe that The Good Vibes Tour represents a super fun opportunity to help normalize cannabis use, support the cannabis community and shake off outdated social stigmas and stereotypes.
