PAAC: Cannabis in Canada

As Canada counts down to next year’s legalization of marijuana, policy progress and business plans are heating up in preparation for this controversial Liberal government promise. Join PAAC on November 15 for a special half-day event focusing on medical and recreational marijuana use.

We will begin the morning discussing how medical use of marijuana is a turning point for patients. This panel will assess, analyze and take audience questions on the impacts and implications of a post-legalization on medical marijuana patients, physicians, producers and government. Panelists include:

  • Philippe Lucas, Executive Director of the Canadian Medical Cannabis Council
  • Janet Yale, CEO of the Arthritis Society
  • Jonathan Zaid, Executive Director & Founder, Canadians for Fair Access to Medical Marijuana
  • Moderator: Jessica Smith Cross, Editor, QP Briefing

From medical use, we’ll turn to recreational use of marijuana. What happens when a $9 billion industry becomes legal? Listen to and engage with a panel of experts in discussing how everything from taxation to retail will influence the future recreational market in Canada. Panelists include:

  • Cameron Bishop, Director of Government Affairs at Privateer Holdings/Tilray
  • Tony Coulston, Group Vice-President, Environics Research
  • Jean-François Crépault, Senior Policy Analyst, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health
  • Teresa Reguly, Partner, Tory’s LLP
  • Moderator: Ginny Movat, Senior Consultant, Crestview Strategies

Seating is limited for this engaging and topical event. Register early to secure your space.
