On April 13, 2017, the federal government announced much anticipated legislation to legalize and regulate the use of cannabis for recreational purposes. This roundtable brings thought leaders from across the sector in Canada and the U.S., together with Blakes lawyers, who will consider the challenges and opportunities resulting from the legislation and its far-reaching and extensive potential impacts on business.
This roundtable will be hosted in Toronto and live-streamed to our Montréal, Calgary and Vancouver offices.
