This past weekend on March 24-25th, 2018, Quarry Park Lawyers Alexander Kooiman and Jonathan Ablett were presenters at Hempfest Edmonton as part of their ongoing Speakers Series. Alex and Jon presented previously at Hempfest Calgary on September 30 – October 1, 2017 on the history of cannabis law in Canada to this point, the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) and the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations (MMAR).
Alex and Jon provided updates on recent legal developments surrounding the proposed federal legalization of cannabis, Alberta distribution framework and further provincial regulatory issues pertaining to Alberta cannabis businesses including retail applications.
The presentation was very well attended and drew a large and varied crowd who actively engaged the lawyers with a variety of questions ranging from landlord/tenant concerns, commercial, criminal code and employment law.
