The legalization of cannabis has been far from a smooth roll-out. Municipalities are still left with significant work to be accomplished. If you work on land use planning and zoning, business licensing, municipal workplace safety, enforcement relating to public consumption or impaired driving, you are still surrounded by unanswered questions.

You will learn what you can expect with legalization of edibles, including the impact on community and public health and safety. You will leave with a clear picture of what you are required to do, as a municipal employer, to keep municipal employees safe now that you have to worry about the potential effects of cannabis at the workplace. Experts from large and small municipalities in a variety of provinces will explain how they are dealing with land use planning and zoning and business licensing. You will understand the enforcement issues relating to consumption and impaired driving and the complexity and potential problems involved in the supply chain.

This is a unique opportunity to hear from those most able to provide the important information, insights and strategies you need to meet the complex challenge ahead. Register now so you and your municipality have the necessary knowledge to reduce the risk and increase the potential economic benefits of the national cannabis policy. Your up-front investment of time will repay you time and again as you move forward more decisively, confidently and knowledgeably than you otherwise would have. Register today!
