The Potential of Pot

March 1, 2019

Event Navigation

Recreational cannabis has now been legal in Canada for a few months, so how has it affected BC so far?

About this Event

On March 1st, come join us in an interactive “living library” with diverse cannabispolicy stakeholders to discuss how legalization has influenced their sector so far:

What is going right?

What is going wrong?

What have we totally missed?

The format for the evening will be a ‘living library’: different policy stakeholders will be seated at separate tables. Participants will circulate among the tables where they can discuss policy-relevant questions with each stakeholder. The goal of this exercise will be for participants to understand the challenges and opportunities around cannabis policy from the perspective of different stake-holder groups.
