Cannabis Legalization Primer

Cannabis Legalization Primer

 

On August 28th, 2017, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) released their primer on cannabis legalization and how municipalities can prepare for its implementation in July 2018. In addition to a jurisidictional overview, the primer includes several proactive steps and recommendations communities can undertake in the upcoming months to ensure that they are prepared for the new law. Recommendations include developing a municipal group dedicated to cannabis legalization concerns, engaging with provincial and federal governments, consulting with the public, and creating a financial plan to account for costs related to public education and enforcement surrounding cannabis, among others.
