Rolling Along: The State of Marijuana Legalization in Canada and the United States

The Canadian government has unveiled its draft legislation to legalize marijuana. The proposed Cannabis Act would allow Canadians 18 and over to legally possess up to 30 grams and grow up to four plants in their homes. The legislation also provides for criminal penalties for selling cannabis to children and youth, and would increase enforcement and penalties for driving while drug-impaired. The proposed date for legalization is July 1, 2018. But much remains to be determined over the next 15 months, including: the legislative hurdles that the Cannabis Act will face, the roles of the provinces and territories in regulating and controlling access to the product, and the reaction of the United States to its northern neighbour legalizing marijuana. Meanwhile, four states voted to legalize recreational use in the 2016 elections, bringing the number of states that permit recreational marijuana to 8, plus the District of Columbia. However, the new Trump Administration has signalled that it is considering a crackdown on at least the recreational use of marijuana—which would put it at odds with the growing legalization movement. Professor Sam Kamin of the University of Denver, one of America's expert voices on the subject, will outline the latest developments south of the border, describe what works and don’t works in the U.S., and offer insights on the Canadian strategy. Professor Kamin was recently quoted inTime magazine describing differences between the U.S. and Canadian approaches. In this special webinar to be held on 4/20, hear from someone who can make sense of the myriad components of marijuana law reform.
