As if Cannabis Legalization 1.0 wasn’t challenging enough, now lawyers have to deal with Cannabis Legalization 2.0 - the new and improved Cannabis Regulations that legalize and regulate “edibles, extracts and topicals.”

What are all these new product lines? What are the rules regarding packaging and dosing, promotion and advertising? And most importantly, where can I buy them?

Join moderator, cannabis lawyer and author Russell Bennett on a pre-holiday journey with a panel of experts to answer all your cannabis consumption questions that may have you admitting, “We’re not in Kansas anymore.”

Agenda

  • Packaging and labeling restrictions and allowances
  • The promotion and advertising prohibitions:
  • The challenges of competition with the illicit Canadian market and the US market, and
  • Comparing the prohibitions to those of tobacco and alcohol
  • THC dosing and prohibited ingredients
  • Product liability - personal injury, contamination, 3rd party claims
  • Protections for youth regarding purchases and consumption
  • Are restaurants and bars covered in the Cannabis Regulations?
  • Are there restrictions for home creation and consumption?

Client Service; Managing client expectations when your client wants to do something in the “grey market”): A discussion regarding Rule 3.2-7,

“A lawyer shall not

(a) knowingly assist in or encourage any dishonesty, fraud, crime, or illegal conduct;

(b) do or omit to do anything that the lawyer ought to know assists in, encourages or facilitates any dishonesty, fraud, crime, or illegal conduct by a client or any other person; or

(c) advise a client or any other person on how to violate the law and avoid punishment,”

which applies whether the lawyer's knowledge is actual or in the form of willful blindness or recklessness.
