LexisNexis Webinar: Cannabis Law in Canada with Russell Bennett

 

 

November 13, 2019

Russell Bennett, B.Sc., LL.B., the author of the only annotated Cannabis Act in Canada, entitled Canada’s Cannabis Act: Annotation and Commentary, highlights the major developments of cannabis legalization in Canada as of November 2019.

Bennett reviews the main sources of the new legislation and examines how the Act is divided into criminal prohibitions and regulatory provisions, with a strong emphasis on the Cannabis Regulations, which came into force on October 17, 2019, one year after legalization.

The webinar is divided into four parts:

  1. Cannabis Act’s criminal provisions
  2. Cannabis Act’s regulatory and licensing provisions
  3. Cannabis Regulations regarding edibles, extracts, and topicals
  4. Assessment of legalization and its applications in the provinces
