As we enter the second phase of cannabis legalization with the introduction of cannabis edibles, topicals, beverages and concentrates we face new challenges: New products, market expansion, edibles that metabolize differently, kick in later and last longer, increased concern about unintentional consumption by children and over consumption by adults impatient to feel the effects.

The stakes are high. Once again, municipal officials and other regulators are on the front line. From increased impaired driving accidents and fatalities, to the impact on the black market, and the potential impact on vulnerable populations, there's no telling what the consequences of a failure to effectively regulate cannabis will be. You need to take all necessary steps to be prepared – and that means acquiring the best information anywhere available.

That's why we created Infonex's program Stage 2 - Regulating Cannabis Edibles: A Specialized Forum for Municipal and Other Regulators. This is an opportunity to hear the foremost experts on the key issues and receive the most up-to-date information possible.

Topics covered will include: new and expanding product lines; the tremendous expansion in the cannabis market; the new cannabis culture; differences between recreational and medicinal regimes; a deep dive into the edibles regulations and industry viewpoints on the impact the regulations will have on the emerging cannabis industry in Canada; planning, zoning, licensing, of cannabis and cannabis edible production facilities and retail; problems that can arise with home cultivation; evidence-based research on cannabis and cannabis edibles; policing issues including potential challenges to impaired driving charges; stats and facts on the black market, how it operates, adequacy of clearances and background checks, impact of shortages; and finally, in light of the new edibles market, a reconsideration of the potential for lounges and restaurants.
