SS Forum: Cannabis Legalization – Why You Can’t Relax

Friday, February 16, 2018 - 7:30pm to 9:15pm

The legalization of cannabis in Canada is fast approaching. Why has the legalization of cannabis become so complicated? What will legal pot mean for you? Will legalization for adults end up punishing youth?
Victoria-based lawyer Kirk Tousaw – who is a major force behind the legalization of cannabis in Canada – joins the Salt Spring Forum in discussion.
Tousaw is the go-to person for litigation concerning marijuana, up to and including the Supreme Court of Canada. A long-standing and influential proponent of law reform, Tousaw has worked extensively on issues related to drug policy and criminal justice policy.
Tousaw has regularly consulted with Health Canada on matters of cannabis law reform and has participated in various roundtables with the Cannabis Legalization Task Force.
Is the legalization of pot just a political fake-out? Come to the Forum to find out!
