Description


Canadian Grown: The 2020 Cannabis Public Policy Conference

October 16 & 17, 2019 | Metro Toronto Convention Centre

Where will you be on the one-year anniversary of legalization in Canada?

On October 17, 2018, Canada became the first G7 country to legalize cannabis on a national level. Since that time, unprecedented levels of capital, investment, research, and innovation have shaped Canada's cannabis market into a global leader.

In order to maintain that first-mover advantage, smart, strategic public policy will continue to play a pivotal role in the years to come.
