Cannabis Law, Second Edition

Availability:

Cannabis Law is a practical guide to all aspects of the Cannabis Act and regulations, and the complementary provincial laws and regulations.

Cannabis Law covers a wide variety of legal issues, including criminal law, commercial law, and workplace and human rights-related issues. It will be essential reading not only for lawyers, but for those who want to participate in this new industry, as well as educators.

Praise for Cannabis Law:

Essential and required reading, whether for the casual follower or sophisticated aficionado alike.

The Honourable Mr. Justice Rick Libman, Ph.D., Ontario Court of Justice

What's New in the Second Edition:

The second edition focuses on providing analysis and guidance on the business side of cannabis, including two new chapters:

Edibles - Edibles look like a game changer in the nascent cannabis industry, as a growing number of consumers prefer to eat and drink cannabis rather than smoke it.

Industrial Hemp - Traditionally used just for rope and sailing cloth, hemp use has increased exponentially to include such diverse products as building material (“hempcrete”, for example), and a component in libations like vodka and beer. Hemp is also the source for the production of cannabidiol (“CBD”), which has spawned its own vibrant industry. CBD has shown some promise in addressing a wide variety of health conditions, including epilepsy and the inability to sleep, though the more ambitious claims about its efficacy require more science to back them up.
