Learning level: All levels

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.

Under the guidance of John W. Conroy, QC, pre-eminent cannabis law counsel in Canada, this course will drill down on specific areas for you as a practitioner.

Maximizing the Help and Minimizing the Harm 
The morning focuses on two areas of regulation: cannabis as a drug and the effect of cannabis on individuals.

  • In "Cannabis as Medicine", you will examine the evolution of cannabis marijuana from a controlled drug to a regulated health care product, as well as the current issues and discourse surrounding medical cannabis.
  • In "Cannabis and Impairment", you will explore the twin issues of regulation and measurement of potential impairment caused by cannabis in both the criminal and employment law contexts.

Cannabis and Business — The Ultimate Joint Venture 
The afternoon reviews the major issues that arise when advising cannabis-related business. As cannabis becomes a mainstream industry, "cannabusinesses" will need legal advice on everything from investment, to setting up shop, to operations, and compliance. You will learn about business regulation, investment and finance, insurance, and cross-border issues to better serve this up-and-coming clientele.
