Cannabis Industry Retail: Opportunities for Private Enterprise

by: CJeremy Burke and Gaurav Gopinath

Now that the federal Cannabis Act has received Royal Assent, the path to legalization (on October 17, 2018) is clear. Unfortunately, as in other heavily-regulated industries, there will be significant differences across the provinces and territories in how cannabis may be distributed and sold.

 

The Cannabis Act imposes a common framework across Canada (including strict rules about the retail advertising, labelling and packaging of cannabis products), but the provinces will retain authority over whether to permit private retail sales, online sales and a number of other matters.
