Myth-Busting the Cannabis Sector on International Cannabis Day

Archive Now Available!

Sherri M. Altshuler

There are many imaginative misconceptions about the legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada.

On International Cannabis Day our panel of cannabis-sector experts busted some myths that continue to confuse, perplex and damage this thriving industry.

Areas of misunderstanding include:

  • Why are we legalizing cannabis?
  • What's the difference between medical & recreational use?
  • What products and activities are permitted?
    • What types of products will be legal: strains, edibles and oils
    • What types of business activities will be legal: advertising, dispensaries and cannabis lounges
    • What types of personal use activities will be legal: production and public-use
  • The “cannabis does more damage than liquor” and “smoking flower is the cleanest” debates

External Speakers:

John Fowler - CEO, The Supreme Cannabis Company Inc.
Michael Garbuz - Corporate Strategy & Legal Counsel, CannaRoyalty
Corey Herscu - Founder & CEO, RNMKR PR
