Did you know that on October 17, 2018, the personal use of marijuana in every province of Canada will be legal? Adults in Canada will be able to buy cannabis from government and privately run retail stores across the country and online.

Did you know that the largest cannabis company in the world is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and has a market capitalization of over $10 billion? Canadian cannabis companies not only dominate the TSX, but are starting to expand into the United States (with some significant caveats) and internationally.

Meanwhile if you were to drive from California to Chicago, you could cross through states where cannabis is fully legal, partially legal and totally prohibited.

Come join Gordon Cameron from the Canadian law firm of Stikeman Elliott LLP and Matthew Kittay from the U.S. law firm of Fox Rothschild LLP as they explore the Canadian framework for legalized marijuana and the burgeoning domestic and international market for Canadian cannabis as well the patchwork of laws and regulations in the United States, including an understanding of the US federal government’s ever evolving approach to marijuana regulation.
