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.

On Day One, you will 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.

On Day Two, you will focus on:

  1. "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.
  2. "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.
  3. "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.

If you are thinking of expanding your practice into this area or already practice in an area of law which has a significant cannabis marijuana dimension, you need this program!
