Legal History of Cannabis in Canada

Written by David Brown

Cannabis has become a hot topic these days with the legalization of recreational cannabis slated to come into effect in July 2018.  Although cannabis is not new to Canada, the number of news articles and public information that is becoming available has grown exponentially.  This increasingly popular topic, along with the fast-paced nature of this industry, has resulted in a great deal of conflicting and confusing information being disseminated.  This course has been designed to assist in debunking some of the common myths and misinformation by providing factual and current information regarding where cannabis began, and where we are at today.

Course Dates: on demand - Course will be available April 30
