The date for the roll-out of legal cannabis has been set. For the most part you are ready for the retail model your province has selected. As the rubber meets the road, however, new questions will emerge: Does legalization place an unsustainable financial and operational burden on municipalities? What is the impact on public safety? Are regulations effective in stopping drugged driving? What are neighbours complaining about? The list goes on...

At the same time, legalization of edibles is less than a year away. With the industry moving away from smoking options to meet the demands of a huge market in edibles, it’s time for municipalities and other government officials to understand the unique risks related to edibles and for the cannabis industry to think about what regulations might look like.

The bottom line is that legalization of edibles is not too far away! And If you’re not prepared, informed, and aware of the impact edibles will have you’ll be playing catch-up. Licensed producers need to be ready to take advantage of enormous opportunities. Regulators, public health and police need to know all they can about the unique impact pf edibles and take all necessary precautions. You need to understand:

  • Why we need special regulations for cannabis edibles;
  • Lessons learned in other jurisdictions;
  • Differences in the way flowers and edibles are metabolized;
  • The impact edibles will have on the size of the cannabis market;
  • anticipated local impact
  • and more...
